Good luck to all those participating in today’ss Under & Over The Mersey charity walk. The event, organised by Merseytravel is expected to attract 10,000 participants, with all proceeds from the entry fee’s going to Claire House.
The walk starts at the Liverpool end of the Queensway tunnel entrance and there’ll be entertainment for all the family during the walk-through. Walkers who need to get back to Liverpool can return free of charge by ferry, hence the ‘under and over’ theme! The event was put together to celebrate the tunnel’s 75th anniversary celebrations.
I did the walk last year as part of the Capital of Culture celebrations, sadly this year I can’t take part because I am travelling to Norwich later to help Chloe Smith campaign to become a Conservative MP there, in the bye election on Thursday 23rd July. Good luck to all the walkers and to Chloe, hopefully we can have a double celebration!
