Chain reaction for Welwyn Garden City charity’s sponsored walk

A POPULAR charity fundraiser is undergoing a revamp.

The Chain Walk has been a popular event on WGC-based Isabel Hospice’s calendar since it began in 2001.

Now, for its 11th year, it is set to change – with a little help from two keen hospice supporters.

Godfrey Skinner and Jeremy Waldron are in the process of walking all 19 routes the event offers around the hospice’s catchment area, with a view to refreshing each one.

A hospice spokeswoman said: “They are using their local knowledge and experience of walking to make suggestions on how to improve the attractiveness of the walks and are including notes for each one.
