Rock legend Marty Wilde has officially agreed to be patron of the Welwyn Garden City Rotary Walk and Fun Run ahead of this year’s event.

The fundraiser, organised by the WGC and Hatfield Rotary clubs, involves people walking or running either 6.5 or 11 miles around WGC’s countryside and woodlands.

Entrants will keep all the money they raise for their chosen charity, but entry costs will go to four headline charities: Hertfordshire Action on Disability, Digswell Place Group Riding For The Disabled (RDA), Kimpton Blue Cross rehoming centre, and Carers in Hertfordshire.

Marty, who lives with his family in Tewin, said he was delighted to be able to support such a great fundraiser, which will start at Sherrardspark Wood’s entrance at 9am on Sunday, April 29.

Honorary Rotarian Terry Mitchinson said: “It was terrific of Marty to find time to join us for this launch event.

“We hope this year’s will be the biggest and best ever.”

It costs £10 to enter, which will be distributed among the headlines charities, Rotary’s chosen causes and go towards running costs.
