Charity runners and walkers will be striding out to raise funds for three West Norfolk causes.
King’s Lynn’s Trinity Rotary Club has teamed-up with the Magpie Centre for Riding for the Disabled and Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) to organise a 10K run and walk on Sunday, June 10 around the Wallington Hall Estate at South Runcton.
The run will start at 9.30am while walkers will set off at 10am with entry closing at 11am. Entry is by way of a suggested £10 donation (free for under 10s).
Car parking will be free and there will be refreshments and a barbecue. Money raised will be divided between the three causes.
Rosie O’Grady, Magpie Centre chairman, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the event again this year. It’s a great opportunity for those running and walking to see the excellent facilities we have at the Magpie Centre and to enjoy a lovely estate not usually open to the public.”
Paul Strutt, communications and fundraising officer for NARS, said: “NARS is delighted to support the run/walk because as a charity, we rely on the public to fund us in our vital work saving lives.”
John Hodson, event organiser for Trinity, added: “This is the second run and walk we have organised to raise money for charity at Wallington Hall. It will be a 10K run and walk over the same route.
“There is something for everyone to do who likes being out and about and enjoying our wonderful Norfolk countryside. There is a shorter walk as well for younger families and dogs on leads are welcome with walkers.”
