MEMBERS of a Harlow walking group attracted plenty of attention when they took part in a charity event on Sunday morning.
Dressed in festive outfits, 31 Harlow Sunday Walkers trekked from Bush Fair to the town centre collecting en route for St Clare’s Hospice. On the way, passing motorists sounded their horns and waved in support and, once in the town centre, the walkers were warmly greeted by families – particularly small children, who were keen to meet and “high five” with Frozen character Olaf.
Before setting off back to Bush Fair, the walkers were invited to take a rest in Wetherspoons, where the management provided free teas and coffees for all.
The street collection yielded just over £125. but with the proceeds from various other fundraising events, the total raised currently stands at £457.84p with more money expected to come in after Christmas.
This was the walkers’ third annual charity walk in aid of St Clare’s. Leader Steve Morton, whose Santa costume saw him “seated” on a reindeer, said: “A most enjoyable charity walk was improved greatly through the support of Harlow’s residents and visitors alike. The kindness and generosity shown by all at this time of year to support a local charity is truly heartwarming.”
