A FESTIVE fundraising walk is being held at Help for Heroes’ Phoenix House recovery centre in Catterick Garrison this Sunday.

The ‘Yuletide Yomp’ is offering a three-mile fully-accessible route as well as a family and dog-friendly five-mile, ten-mile and 15-mile walks through the Richmondshire countryside.

The event has been organised by Mark Airey, physical development coach at Phoenix House who has pledged to wear a fairy outfit if more than 75 fundraisers take part.

He said: “Everyone is welcome to join in our Yuletide Yomp, it’s a fantastic way to have fun while helping us continue our vital work supporting wounded veterans and their families."
