Walking for a good cause

Share this article

Walkers are wanted to walk in late spring’s beauty for a great cause on Sunday 9th June from 10am to 2pm in the grounds of Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk.

The North Norfolk Group of Diabetes UK have once again chosen the historic National Trust grounds of Felbrigg to hold their annual, fundraising, sponsored walk. Suitable for all ages and set out as a figure of eight (to give a 3.3km or 2.7km walk) this gentle walk runs through woods and meadows filled with spring bird song and alive with other wildlife – that unusually now includes a resident whooper swan which for two years has not returned in summer to its Iceland breeding grounds.

So if you feel you would like to help raise vitally needed funds to help this Diabetes charity continue to fund new research, raise awareness and improve treatments for diabetics, please come along.

All are welcome including families and dogs (on leads) and there is wheelchair access on the Victory woodland walk loop. Parking is free and toilets and catering are available close by the start and finish point, which will be situated between the Hall and the nearby lovely walled gardens.

To register and receive sponsorship forms please contact Jackie Neve on 01692 405492 or E-mail diabetes.uk@hotmail.co.uk
