Hundreds of walkers are stepping out for a host of good causes at the KM Charity Walk this Sunday, June 29.
The annual summer stroll is set to raise funds for more than 40 charitable organisations.
Participants will be raising money for their favourite causes as they follow one of two routes, a five-mile or a 10-mile version, both starting from Brogdale Collections.
Each walker will collect stamps from stamping stations along the way to earn a goody bag and certificate at the finish line. Volunteers from the Harmony Therapy Trust will also be on hand to offer massages for £5 per person to round off a great day out.
Event organiser Nancy Clark said: “The walk offers the best of historic Faversham as well as beautiful woodlands, fields and country lanes. Participants taking the longer route will also get to experience the charm of Faversham Creek.”
The Charity Walk is sponsored by Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame. Moray Neame, communications executive, said: “We are very pleased to be involved in the KM Charity Walk. It does a great deal for the local and national charities that it supports and it is a real privilege to be involved this year.”
The KM Charity Walk takes place on Sunday, June 29 and participants will be setting off between 8am and 10am. The event is due to finish at 5pm.
The proceeds will be divided between walkers’ named charities and the children’s road safety work of the KM Charity Team.
Book online for £11.50 per adult at www.kmcharitywalk.co.uk by Friday or turn up on the day and pay a £15 booking fee in person. Bring your sponsor money in the form of a cheque, a JustGiving print out or in good old fashioned cash.
