Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) is issuing a call for people to join them on their stunning sponsored walk around the picturesque island of Rathlin on Sunday 11th September.

Rathlin Island has a rare and untamed beauty which participants will explore on the five mile circular route.

A local guide will lead the way, identifying an array of wildlife and sharing his knowledge of the island and its history. There will be time to kick back and stop for lunch and also free time at the end to relax, celebrate your achievement and enjoy island life before boarding the ferry.

MFR Fundraising Officer, Karen Dunlop said, ‘This is the third year of our walk and it is always a thoroughly enjoyable day! It is certainly a great day out for families, groups of friends, individuals looking for a good walking challenge and also budding photographers with lots of beautiful pictures to be captured! It’s also a good excuse to drift away for a day and explore a beautiful part of the country. We would love people to sign up and take part in support of our work.”

Registration fees are £15 per adult, £5 for Senior Citizens with a valid Smart Pass and £5 for children aged 5-15 years. This includes your return ferry and services of a guide. The charity also asks participants to aim to raise a minimum of £45 sponsorship in support of their vital work. To sign up email karend@meningitis.org or call 028 9032 1283.
