The North Downs Walk
Inaugurated in 1985 the North Downs’ walk has to date attracted over 14,000 walkers and raised over £500,000 for charity including £270,000 for Cancer Research UK. The Rotary Club of the Weald of Kent was proud to be receive a Special Commendation in 2018 as Community Organisation of the year and was presented with CRUK’s Flame of Hope for outstanding Fund raising achievements.
Art & Craft Show
The Art and Craft Show was originally conceived over 30 years ago as an annual event providing an opportunity for local aspiring artists (especially young people) to exhibit and even sell their work. A little later it was expanded to include crafts which has proved to be very popular. The exhibition provides an occasion where artists can discuss their work with people attending the show while enjoying socialising. An exhibitor at the show subsequently launched a successful professional career. It was never intended to be a fund-raiser but where some money is made this has been used to purchase Shelter Boxes.
