Charities and community groups are being called to join in with the first Tonbridge Lions-organised sponsored walk since 2019, to boost fundraising efforts across the community.
The event, which has not run for four years due to Covid, allows all sorts of groups to take part in a single walk – with all marshals and medical cover organised and paid for by Tonbridge Lions – to raise funds for their own causes.
Lions spokesman Mike Stout explained: “No entrance fee is charged, so the organisations keep all the sponsor money for their funds.
“When it was last held in 2019, 115 walkers took part, raising in excess of £4,500 for their chosen charities and organisations.”
The route starts and finishes at Shipbourne Village Hall, with a choice of two routes – six or nine miles.
“Detailed point-to-point instructions and maps will be issued on the day, and both routes will be well marshalled,” added Mr Stout.
Lions organisers will officially stamp sponsor forms to confirm completion of the walk and walkers will be presented with a certificate signed by Richard Hill, president of Tonbridge Lions Club.
To register for the walk, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tonbridge Lions 39th Annual Sponsored Walk for Charity and Community Groups takes place on Sunday May 21.
