The British Red Cross is calling for High Peak families to paint Derbyshire red on their new Red Shoe Walk in the Hope Valley on June 7.

Starting from the Edale Village Hall, the walk covers eight miles, and participants will be asked to dress in red and will be encouraged to wear either a pair of free red shoe covers or their own red shoes, whether they be sparkly red Converse or cherry red Dr Martens.

The event forms part of a series of red shoe walks across the country for the charity’s annual Red Cross Week, which aims to raise £1 million for British Red Cross work at home and overseas.

British Red Cross fundraiser Alex Gadsby, says: “No matter your age or where you live there is a red shoe walk to suit you – the Derbyshire event being our closest and in my opinion the most beautiful! It really is a great day out for the whole family and a great opportunity to raise some money.”
