En­joy the coun­try­side and help a wor­thy cause while you walk

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

Bath Mill Lodge Retreat is show­ing its sup­port for Ju­lian House by tak­ing part in this year’s Cir­cuit of Bath Walk to raise funds for the char­ity. Cho­sen as their char­ity of the year, man­ager Will Pas­coe is en­ter­ing a team, in­clud­ing him­self, in the walk on Sun­day Septem­ber 23. The Cir­cuit of Bath Walk marks its 17th year and last year at­tracted more than 500 peo­ple to the pop­u­lar event which this year hopes to raise £20,000. Stephen Ch­esworth, com­mu­nity and events fundraiser for Ju­lian House, said: “We re­ally value the sup­port of Will Pas­coe and his staff at Bath Mill Lodge Retreat and hope they en­joy the chal­lenge of the walk, while rais­ing vi­tal funds for Ju­lian House.” The walk is free but par­tic­i­pants are asked to raise as much spon­sor­ship as they can so the char­ity can con­tinue to help and sup­port home­less and marginalised peo­ple. The whole route is 20 miles but walk­ers can choose to trek as lit­tle as two miles thanks to the unique shut­tle bus ser­vice that op­er­ates at check­points along the way. Stephen said: “Whether you’re a keen walker or a fam­ily look­ing for a pleas­ant af­ter­noon out, the Cir­cuit of Bath is a ter­rific event. Peo­ple who have lived in Bath for years have been sur­prised at the stun­ning coun­try­side which is right on their doorstep, just two or three miles from the bustling city cen­tre.” The Cir­cuit of Bath Walk is spon­sored by Ther­mae Bath Spa and is part of the Bath­scape Walk­ing Fes­ti­val which takes place from Septem­ber 15 to 23.
