Last chance for KM walk

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

With just a few days to go un­til the KM Char­ity Walk, a lead­ing high street re­tailer is call­ing for ad­di­tional par­tic­i­pants to get in­volved.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 21st year, the an­nual fundraiser staged by the KM Group’s char­i­ta­ble di­vi­sion pro­vides the per­fect day out for friends and fam­i­lies.

Matt Trusty, Kent re­gional chair­man of Spec­savers – a longserv­ing sup­port of the event, said: “With just one week to go un­til the KM Char­ity Walk, now is the time to se­cure your place.

“Over the past two decades, the event has raised nearly £1 mil­lion for vi­tal good causes across the county, such as the life­sav­ing ser­vice pro­vided by the Kent, Sur­rey and Sus­sex Air Am­bu­lance.”

Book­ing re­mains open for the chal­lenge event which takes place on Sun­day, start­ing and fin­ish­ing at Maid­stone’s Mote House. Ram­blers have the op­tion of tack­ling five or 10-mile treks, and the walk con­cludes at a gar­den party with a bar­be­cue and live mu­sic. All par­tic­i­pants will be pre­sented with a lim­ited edi­tion medal.

Last year’s event raised £20,000 for many char­i­ties, and or­gan­is­ers hope to beat that fig­ure this year.

En­try is £11.50 per adults, free for chil­dren un­der 16. For in­for­ma­tion and book­ing, visit www. km­char­i­ty­walk.co.uk
