Join festive walk to boost charity funds

KNOWLE and Dorridge Lions are gearing up for this year’s festive walk.

KNOWLE and Dorridge Lions are gearing up for this year’s festive walk.

The annual, post-Christmas stroll is an ideal way to walk off the turkey and chocolate, and has proven very popular in previous years.

Starting off at Baddesley Clinton, walkers can choose a four, seven or ten-mile route through the Warwickshire countryside on December 28.

“Not only do walkers get the opportunity of walking off some of their Christmas excesses, they can get the extra satisfaction of supporting some really worthwhile charities,” said organiser Simon Newell.

“We are delighted to confirm that with the help of various sponsors all the costs of the event have been covered and therefore every pound raised or donated by the walkers will go to the charities, with 30 per cent retained for local causes.”

The Lions nominated charities will be The Teenage Cancer Trust, the Parkinson’s Disease Society and fly2help.

If you’d like to take part in this year’s saunter which starts at 10am, go to www.knowleanddorridgelions.com/walk
