100 step out to show sup­port

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Walk­ers braved the el­e­ments for a 15km or 25km walk to boost a char­ity’s fi­nances.

More than 100 peo­ple took part in Heart of Kent Hospice’s Walk 25, which took a cir­cu­lar route from Te­ston Bridge Coun­try Park through Yald­ing, West Peck­ham, East Peck­ham, and Net­tlestead Green.

Sup­ported by the Malling Li­ons, Apollo Taxis and the Euro­pean School of Os­teopa­thy, the event was a huge suc­cess, and walk­ers were thrilled to see stu­dents from the Box­ley school of­fer­ing leg, neck and shoul­der mas­sages as they fin­ished their walks.

Erica Snow, events and com­mu­nity fundrais­ing man­ager for hospice at Ayles­ford, said: “My thanks go to Malling District Li­ons for all their sup­port, and es­pe­cially to the 50-plus vol­un­teers who en­abled this walk to hap­pen. De­spite the grey weather we had a fan­tas­tic day, and a heart­felt thank you, on be­half of those we care for, to ev­ery­one who took part and raised spon­sor­ship for the hospice.”
