THE battle of the sexes takes on a whole new meaning as fundraisers take on the challenge of walking from Rotherham to Sheffield.
For the men will all be dressed in women’s clothes and the women in men’s as they embark on the 13 miles from Rotherham Hospice to St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield as their contribution to the 2016 Master Cutler’s Challenge.
This Saturday’s walk by Attercliffe company Progressive Safety begins in Rotherham at 9am and is scheduled to reach its Sheffield finish at approximately 4pm, when a celebration will be held at the Rising Sun pub.
“Once again, another company has come up with a very different way of supporting the Challenge and its charities of the year, the two hospices,” said St Luke's Corporate fundraising coordinator Jack Kidder.
“We suspect, though, that there might be some sore feet by the end — especially the ones that aren't used to wearing high heels.”
