Hun­dreds stride out for good causes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Charity Walk -

Walk­ers who stepped out in the sun­shine on Sun­day have raised more than £6,000 for good causes.

The KM Char­ity Walk at­tracted more than 320 men, women, chil­dren and dogs choos­ing from a 10-mile and five-mile route, both start­ing and fin­ish­ing in Char­ing.

Money raised will be di­vided be­tween Pil­grims Hos­pices, The Heart of Kent Hospice, Wis­dom Hospice, Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port and the KM Char­ity Team’s chil­dren’s road safety, en­vi­ron­men­tal, health and well­be­ing ini­tia­tives.

Nancy Clark from the KM Char­ity Team said: “On be­half of all the char­i­ties that will ben­e­fit from the event, I would like to thank all the walk­ers and their spon­sors for mak­ing this such a suc­cess.”

She added that they were grate­ful to sup­port­ers of the event, in­clud­ing Char­ing Pri­mary School and the PTFA, who sold tea and cakes to re­turn­ing walk­ers.

Mem­bers of the Stal­is­field Vil­lage Hall com­mit­tee served bar- be­cue food to help their fundrais­ing for a new hall.

Mrs Clark also thanked High­worth Gram­mar School for Girls for vol­un­teer­ing as mar­shals, War­bur­tons for pro­vid­ing goody bags and Aud­ley Care for sup­ply­ing wa­ter bot­tles.
