Walk­ers step out for a good cause

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

SIX­TEEN walk­ers took part in the first Stroll for Stroke around Char­ing on Satur­day – rais­ing cash to help stroke vic­tims. Or­gan­iser Claire Eck­ley hopes that once all the do­na­tions and spon­sor­ship are re­ceived and they claim gift aid they will have raised £2,000 for The Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion to help sur­vivors, fam­ily and car­ers all over Kent. A num­ber of the walk­ers were stroke sur­vivors, and the 5.5 mile Lost Land­scapes Her­itage Trail to Char­ing Heath through open coun­try­side and woods was chal­leng­ing but en­joy­able. All vol­un­teers have been thanked as have the Pub­lic Rights of Way Of­fi­cers for car­ry­ing out works on the route in the run-up to what the char­ity hopes will be­come an an­nual event.
