Fam­i­lies in­vited to the Ba­con Butty Walk

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

FAM­I­LIES are be­ing in­vited to take part in a tra­di­tional New Year’s Day walk around Crowthorne.

Or­gan­ised by the Ro­tary Club of

Crowthorne and Sand­hurst, the event is a twom­ile route through wood­lands at Welling­ton Col­lege, off Dukes Ride.

There is a spe­cial trail for chil­dren, and walk­ers with dogs on leads are also wel­come.

The Ro­tary Club said that walk­ing boots are ad­vised, es­pe­cially if it rains the night be­fore.

Mary Jearey said: “The event is known to some lo­cals as the ‘Ba­con Butty Walk’ as Ro­tary vol­un­teers sell ba­con butties, tea, cof­fee and soft drinks to walk­ers. Funds raised are do­nated to the Ro­tary Club’s char­i­ties.”

Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents have in­cluded Crowthorne char­ity COATS, Chil­dren in Need, Crowthorne Brown­ies’ new HQ Fund and Sand­hurst Scouts.

Do­na­tions are also made an­nu­ally for stu­dent prizes at Edg­bar­row and Sand­hurst Schools.

The event takes place from 11am to 2pm. For more de­tails, log on to www.rc-cs.org or call 07826 573509.

In the event of ad­verse weather on the day, walk­ers are ad­vised to keep an eye on the Club’s web­site and Face­book page for up­dates.
