Wokingham Walk

Sunday, 3 May

This will be the 5th annual Wokingham Charity Walk with three routes – 5, 10 or 15 miles.

The event chooses a different charity to support each year. Our charity in 2020 is the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service which provides essential support and outstanding care from the point of diagnosis to families of children (age 0 – 19 years) with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across Berkshire and the surrounding counties.

The event will start in Howard Palmer Gardens, Wokingham and will have a rolling start time from 9am until 10.30am. Feel free to turn up at a time which suits you. Tea, Coffee and Bacon baps will be available.

The finish will be manned until 6pm so there is no need to rush.
