2017 SPONSORED WALKS

Tadworth & Walton Overseas Aid Trust’s two sponsored walks in May attracted the largest ever participation with 46 walkers taking part across the two events and raising of the order of £2,000.

and on May 27th when  Digby the Labradoodle also participated.

Digby Walk

The walkers traversed the Downs from Epsom Race Course to the Sportsman in Mogador via Headley returning via Walton-on-the-Hill.  The walk was enlivened with anecdotes from local historian, Jean Clew. The record turnout was a fitting tribute to the long term organiser, John Allinson, who had announced his plan to retire from this role having achieved his 80th birthday some time ago.

Fortunately two of his able deputies will be taking over organisation of next year’s event.   The final amount raised in sponsorship will not be known for some weeks but Digby the Labradoodle has a Virgin Money  Giving page that has already raised over £180 and the current running total is around £1500.  This will go to the development projects the charity supports including schools in impoverished communities in Africa, Asia and South America
