Pershore Walk Of Hope
Challenge event categories
Join Cllr Matthew Winfield and his team for this supporter led walk, that is launching the fact that Brain Tumour Research will be the mayor’s ONLY Charity for his year in office. He was inspired to do this as a result of one of Pershore’s residents (Robert Faulkner) losing their battle with a brain tumour, just 8 weeks after diagnosis.
‘We want you to step forward to help find a cure for brain tumours, the biggest cancer killer for children and adults under 40’
We’ll start at Pershore Abbey and take a route around the local area before finishing back at the Abbey.
Suitable for all ages and abilities, the 4.62 mile route is mainly flat and follows pathways. Please be aware that the route may be boggy in areas so walking boots are recommended if it has been wet. Dogs are welcome (but won’t be allowed in the Abbey).
Parking and toilets are available at Abbey Park (toilets are located on Church Walk, between the Abbey and St. Andrews Community Centre). There are lots of places in Pershore where refreshments can be purchased and there will also be an ice-cream van! Keep an eye on the page here for more additions too!
Step forward and join our team today!
