Walkers to stride-out for 31-mile challenge

Walkers are being challenged to trek the 31-mile Worcestershire Way in just one day – all in support of hospice care.

Organised by St Richard’s Hospice, the Worcestershire Way Walk challenge takes place on Friday, July 5.

The day begins at 6am in Bewdley, with participants striding out across the county before finishing on the slopes of the Malvern Hills.

Alison Parkes, fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “This is a fantastic challenge for keen walkers and novices alike, leaving you with a great sense of achievement.

“It could be a brilliant team-building exercise, or a day out with family and friends enjoying our county’s beautiful countryside. Either-way we’re sure it will be a day to remember.

“All the money raised by this event helps us continue to provide our free, hospice care to patients and loved ones when they need us most. We hope you can join us!”

On the day, lunch will be provided at The Talbot at Knightwick and there will be water stations along the route.

Last year’s event saw 139 walkers take part, raising £33,000 for St Richard’s Hospice.

The Worcestershire Way Walk is sponsored by Carisson Properties.
