As we shared earlier in the year, following the success of our dispersed Walks for Water during the pandemic, we are encouraging our supporters to organise sponsored walks local to them to raise funds for WATSAN.
Two supporters have stepped up to the plate and are running walks this June. Participants from other parts of the country are most welcome to join these walks if you would like to meet other WATSAN supporters and enjoy a day out in a new area.
Amberley Walk for Water, Saturday 18th June from 9.30am
This is a 12-mile circuit in the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, taking in beautiful countryside, woodlands and fields, and the River Arun near Arundel (pictured). Details can be found in this leaflet. The walk leader is WATSAN trustee Graham Piper – contact him to join the walk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faversham Walk for Water (“Up the Creek for WATSAN”!), Saturday 11th June from 10am
This walk is a mere 10.5 miles (or 25,000 steps), wending its way past the ancient buildings of old Faversham, along Faversham creek, out to the shoreline of the Swale and along the Saxon Way footpath to Whitstable via Seasalter. The walk is flat and most of it on the springing turf as you walk by the sea wall. Details can be found in this flyer. The walk leader is WATSAN supporter Martin Fosten – contact him to join the walk at email@example.com.
We know both walk leaders would give anyone who would like to join the warmest of welcomes. Online sponsorship pages are easy to set up using our fundraising page on Stewardship.
