A group of local men are looking for donations after promising to walk to the Clarets’ first away game of the season, to Stoke City’s Britannia Stadium on August 15.

Journalists Phil Simpson and Daniel Black (of the Burnley Express) and Andrew Greaves (of The Bolton News), Burnley FC retail manager Tom Mackie and retail merchandiser Tobias Mackie (of JJB) pledged to make the trip after Burnley secured promotion back in May.

The five hope to cover the 65 miles between Turf Moor and the Britannia in around two and a half days.

They will be raising money for Pendleside Hospice as well as the Claretsmad Youth Foundation.
