Rotarians put best foot forward for St Clares
Charity / Tue 7th Jul 2015 am31 09:21am
PUT your best foot forward and join St Clare Hospice for a five-mile family walk along the River Stort organised by seven local Rotary clubs.
The Sunday stroll on July 19 at 10am is the combined effort of members of the Harlow, Harlow Tye, Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth, Stort Valley, Great Dunmow and Epping Forest clubs led by Stort Valley president Derek Crowther.
The walk is suitable for all ages and participants have a choice of two starting points; the Moorhen pub in Harlow or Pig Lane in Bishop’s Stortford.
The two routes will take walkers along the picturesque River Stort, converging on Pishiobury Park in Sawbridgeworth where there will be a picnic with beer tent, brass band, refreshments and children’s activities.
Mr Crowther said: “All the Rotary clubs involved in organising this walk are from West Essex and East Herts, so we wanted to choose a charity that is making a difference to the lives of local people in those areas. We knew what a fantastic job the Hospice does in looking after people with terminal and life-limiting illnesses and their families, so wanted to do our bit to help.
“We couldn’t think of a better organisation to support on our first joint enterprise, and we very much hope this will become an annual fixture.”
Tickets are £10 for adults (children free) and can be booked by visiting the ‘Events’ page of www.stclarehospice.org.uk. Walkers are also encouraged to collect sponsorship for their walk.
