Welwyn Hatfield Rotary Walk launched

WALKERS of all ages and abilities are being sought ahead of an annual charity walk which takes place next month.

The Welwyn Hatfield Rotary Walk, which typically attracts some 400 walkers, is now in its 13th year.

To date, the event – which is organised by the Rotary Clubs of WGC and Hatfield – has raised more than �250,000 for dozens of good causes.

This year, participants can choose to walk either five miles along the Lea Valley or eleven miles on a route taking in Ayot St Lawrence.

Entry costs �5 in advance or �10 if you turn up and register on the day.

Walkers can choose which charity they would like to support and are urged to collect as much money in sponsorship as is possible.

The money each walker raises will then be split with 75 per cent going to the charity of their choice and the remaining 25 per cent going to rotary.
