North Downs Walk – 11 June 2023
Sponsored Walk for Cancer Research UK and your own selected charities
The Rotary Club of the Weald of Kent are running our annual North Downs Walk on Sunday 11th June, starting at Harrietsham Village Hall. It is a sponsored walk, which has been run annually (except in 2020 due to the pandemic) for the past 38 years and has raised in excess of £500,000 for Cancer Research UK and the walkers’ chosen charities.
There are alternative routes to suit walkers of all levels of fitness. The 1 mile and 3 mile routes are fairly flat; the 6 mile and 9 mile routes take in the beautiful North Downs, with stunning views across the Weald. We have water stations, including dog bowls (this is a dog-friendly event) and toilets en-route.
Walkers can start at any time between 8am and 11am and should be back in time for lunch. When you get back to Harrietsham, all walkers are given a free ploughman’s lunch, strawberries and cream, and entertainment by local musicians. Come and make a day of it, and raise money for your favourite cause or charity at the same time.
Half of your sponsorship money will be donated by Rotary to Cancer Research UK. The other half is yours to donate to your selected cause or charity, which might include Scouts, Guides, school PTA, local church, sports club etc. This makes it a great way of raising money for your cause, with Rotary looking after all of the details.
Many thanks to our event sponsors, Family Funeral Service, who have underwritten all the costs of the event; every penny raised in sponsorship will go to the charities.
