Phyllis Tuckwell’s annual sponsored Walk for the Wards will take place this year on Sunday 1st July, with a new route which sets off from the picturesque village of Frensham.
Starting at More House School, the walk will offer both five and ten mile route options, so those taking part can choose between a leisurely stroll and a longer ramble. Both routes will take walkers through the Surrey countryside to Shortfield Common and on to the Great Pond. Hilltop views and waterside walks will abound, as everyone takes in the beautiful scenery and fresh air. The walk will start at 9.30am and a free cream tea will be on offer to all who take part.
“Walk for the Wards is always a popular event with our supporters, combining an enjoyable day out with friends or family, with raising money for an important local charity,” said Gemma Craig, Events Fundraising Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell. “All ages and abilities can take part, and you can even bring your four-legged friend, as dogs are welcome too – but please keep them on a lead.”
This event is kindly sponsored by BakerLaw Solicitors, who advise and support individuals, their families and their businesses with a full range of legal services. The money raised will go towards funding the medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support which Phyllis Tuckwell provides for those living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer. Every day it supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers – in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford – but as the NHS/Government only covers 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £20,000 a day to do this, and so relies heavily on the support and generosity of the local community.
Registration for the Walk is £12 for adults and £5 for children (u-14) but it will be higher on the day, so register now to take advantage of the lower prices. Call Phyllis Tuckwell’s Fundraising team on 01252 729446, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit shop.pth.org.uk/walk-for-the-wards.
