Close to six hundred boys from Bolton School Boys' Division Senior School undertook a 10 mile sponsored walk in sweltering conditions to raise funds for a wide range of worthwhile causes including Boot out Breast Cancer, The Woodland Trust, The Peace Foundation, Leukaemia Care, Langan's Foundation and Homeless Aid UK as well as for the boys' House charities of Night Safe Blackburn, Young Person's Housing Scheme, Bolton Hospice and Papyrus.

The biennial walk, which sees boys walk in Form groups, is usually up to Rivington Pike and back to school but due to the Winter Hill moorland fire, this year's route was diverted and took the boys, who were kept well supplied with water, through Moss Bank Park and Bolton Old Links Golf Club and then down across Chorley New Road for lunch at Regent Park Golf Centre before making their way to Queen's Park and then back to school. Boys are now busy collecting sponsor monies and it is hoped that several thousands pounds will be raised through the walk.
