The walk tales place on Sunday (June 23), and aims to raise money for good causes across Kent, but there’s no fundraising obligation.

And – with entertainment on offer including live music, a craft workshop and scavenger hunt organised by the Kent Wildlife Trust, and delicious food including a barbecue served up by co-hosts Audley Mote House – there is plenty on offer to tempt people to take part.

Walkers will also help choose the winners of a special scarecrow challenge organised by Maidstone Riverside Rotary, with £250 going to the creators of the best entries. And they will be able to enjoy some of Simply Ice Cream’s award-winning treats.

There is a choice of five and 10-mile routes taking participants through the beautiful Kent countryside around Maidstone, and starting and finishing at Audley Mote House’s listed Georgian mansion in Mote Park.

The cost is £10 per individual but there is a two-for-one discount and children go free, meaning it could cost a family of four just £2.50 per person.

Audley Group managing director of operations Paul Morgan said the retirement village was looking forward to welcoming walkers on the day

He added: “It’s a great atmosphere at Mote House as we wave the KM charity walkers off in the morning and welcome them back with the promise of a BBQ throughout the afternoon.

“It’s fantastic to see people from the local community, our staff, supporters and owners all enjoy the grounds of Mote House at what has become a treasured annual event.

“We’re crossing our fingers for some sunshine on Sunday, and look forward to supporting the walk for many years to come.”

The walk is also supported by headline partner Specsavers, and Benenden Hospital Trust, Maidstone Ramblers, the Woodstove Trading Company, the Wellbeing People and Stronger Kent Communities.
