We provide high quality healthcare services primarily to the residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, which have a combined population in the region of 530,000.
A big thank you for the generous donation from Business First which has helped to fund the event. Without this donation, The Big NHS Walk would not have been possible! Business First have also provided a space for the finishing point of the walk.
Sarah Fretwell, Business First Director, said: "We are proud to sponsor the Big NHS Walk and we can't wait to take part. This is a fantastic cause that everyone in our local community should get behind."
These events could not happen without support from local business and the community. Thank you so much to the following for their valued support:
East Ribble District Freemasons, and Burnley and Pendle District Freemasons
The Freemasons provided logistical support on the day, including providing and managing a control station, and volunteering marshals.

The Thorn Inn
