GCA Sponsored Walk today, 19th June 2022

Walkers of all ages, from 2 till 72, including Tilly and Hallie with their pushchairs all managed to complete the 8.7 mile route today, 10 mile for easy counting in the inclement weather!

Thanks go to Margo and George for providing and cooking the bbq, Elchies for donating some goat burgers, all helpers in the kitchen, Eoin for providing the back up car, all landowners for allowing access through their grounds,and especially all who walked and helped raise money for hall funds and charity Charlie House.

The total amount raised will be shared on the website after all monies are gathered in.

Charity

The chosen charity this year is Charlie House, https://www.charliehouse.org.uk/.  Charlie House organises activities and projects to enable families to gain confidence, engage socially, enjoy activities together, meet others in a similar situation, share information and to get emotional and practical support when they need it most.

This charity is a great support to our own community members, Kerrie, Barry, Tilly and Hallie and we are really happy to be supporting them this time round.
