Walk To Remember event at Blenheim Palace on Saturday 8th August

For full details of the event, please follow the link:

It is £10 to enter and all participants are asked to raise at least £100. All money raised will go towards funding the fantastic nurses working in Warwickshire, treating terminally ill patients in their own homes. It would be great if you would like to take part in the walk and help us raise as much money as possible.

The walk organisers are also looking for volunteers to help us put on a safe, successful event. If any one is able to help by manning stations along the route, registrations or giving out T-shirts please contact Kate McGrory.
