The Northdowns Walk
We are currently unsure of the exact format due to the ever-changing pandemic situation but we are determined to stage the North Downs’ Walk in 2021. We cannot deprive you and Cancer Research UK of this opportunity to raise much-needed funds. We may not be able to provide food, and you may need to bring your own drinking cup/container but the walk will go ahead.
Walk registration frpm 8am to 11am
Regular checkpoints and refreshment stops
Why not spread the word and invite your friends and family to join you? Your dogs are also very welcome. What more could you want? A great day out set against the backdrop of the beautiful North Downs.
50% of your sponsorship money will go to Cancer Research UK, 50% to your chosen charity or cause.
Why not get your dog sponsored?
Full ploughmans’ lunch, strawberries and cream and entertainment from a local jazz band making it a complete day out!
Walkers can choose between 1, 3, 6 and 9 mile routes all starting and finishing at Harrietsham Village Hall (ME17 1AP) and all taking in the beautiful North Downs. The one mile route is on hardstanding and suitable for wheelchairs and buggies.
So far the North Downs’ walk has raised over £270,000 for Cancer Research UK as a result of which the Rotary Club of the Weald of Kent received 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.
HistoryInaugurated 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 as a result of which the Rotary Club of the Weald of Kent received 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. The walk is a wonderful opportunity to raise funds without any administrative effort as walkers can retain 50% of their sponsorship for their own favourite charity or cause.
