The Rotary Club of Newbury has been facilitating this Annual Charity Walk for over 20 years and as a result it has enabled local, national and international charities and groups to benefit to the tune of in excess of 50,000 over the last 10 years, truly representing Rotarys objective of Service above Self.
In 2013 Newbury Rotary Club was asked to create a charity walk which was more challenging and it certainly was a walk choice of either 5 or 8 miles was on offer on the 12th May, which included some appreciable gradients and the opportunity to get to the summit of the highest hill in southeast England, Walbury Hill.
Some 63 walkers turned out to support their own favourite charities resulting in a charity benefit of over 3000.
Groups represented more than 11 charities. The youngest walkers were from the 2nd Cold Ash Brownies with a group of 13. Other charities represented included Bruce Trust, Christian Aid, Motor Neurone Disease Association, Mother Theresas Orphanage, Oxfam, Parkinsons, St. Marys Wall Paintings, St Marys Church Shaw, Stroke Care for Newbury and West Berks and West Berks Mencap.
