                     Fifteenth Rotary Walk

For the fifteenth straight year in a row Rye &Winchelsea Rotary Club are inviting applications for their annual Charity Walk. Participants are being sought for one of the 3, 6 or 10 mile circuits that take walkers close to several local sites of interest.

Organiser Richard Popple from Rye Rotary said “Walkers are asked to obtain their own sponsors for the walk with half the cash raised being returned to the participant for their own nominated charity. The 50% that Rye Rotary raises will be handled by the Rye Rotary Trust which is able to claim tax rebates on contributions, so walker’s efforts will be well rewarded. As in previous years the money that Rotary raises will be given to needy local charities. This is one of the biggest fund raising events for local charity in the area we hope that many newcomers will be able to join us this year for this fun event”. Richard concluded “We just hope that the weather will be a little better this year, last time it was decidedly damp and we look forward to drier warmer weather this time”. The walk will be marshalled by Rye Rotary members and refreshments will be available at Icklesham village hall on the longer route. Entry forms can be collected at Past & Present in the High St or [email protected]
