St Christopher’s Fun Walk

St Christopher’s Fun Walk on 19 May 2019 is the biggest fundraising day of the year for Dulwich’s local hospice and by taking part, walkers will help to keep essential services running and freely available for local families in South East London when they need it most. The walk through Keston, Kent and its surrounding countryside is a life-enhancing day out and an infectiously positive communal experience. Many people take part year after year, and come in fancy dress or customised t-shirts remembering someone special.  The Fun Walk starts and finishes at Keston Common in Kent on Sunday 19 May 2019 and meanders through some of Kent’s prettiest countryside. Walkers can choose their sponsored route with a choice of 3, 5, 8 or 11 mile walks, and there are refreshments to refuel the ramblers and entertainment too. For more information or to sign-up visit www.stchristophers.org.uk/funwalk
