THROUGHOUT the month of May the Huckins Family appeal team, which is raising awareness of Lyme Disease, will be handing out leaflets at popular walking spots throughout the region, advising and educating unsuspecting members of the public about the dangers and unseen risks of walking in the woodland. Tomorrow (May 5) the awareness drive will include a refreshment station and cake stall at the summit of Roseberry Topping, near Graet Ayton. The team, who support and help fundraise for the Huckins family, from Redcar, are also organising a bingo night at the Cleveland Bay, Redcar on Friday May 16. For further information visit
