You may remember an intrepid group of walkers last year organising three stunningly scenic, circular walks in Dorset to raise money for our projects.
The event was organised by one of our ambassadors, and this year the ‘Maxse’ group are back with another five gorgeous routes covering the Dorset Coast and Hardy’s Hills between the 25th and 29th March.
The good news is not only that they’re raising money for us, but that the event is open to everyone, human and canine alike. If you’re a keen walker, then you can go the whole hog and complete all five days, or for those with time (and energy!) constraints you can just pick out a day, or join the group for a morning. It’s a very flexible programme, just have a look through the schedule, and then sign up to what you’d like to do.
Highlights include unspoiled valleys and hills, a visit to Mapperton Manor gardens or Kingscombe Meadows Nature reserve, spectacular views of Chesil Beach, the renowned gardens of Littlebredy and Nettlecomb Tout (featured in Tess of the D’Urbervilles). Routes also give views of the Blackmore Vale, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the fabulous coast path past the Old Harry Rocks.
To charge up walkers for the challenge there will be options of pub lunches or picnics depending on your preference. Dogs can join in the trek for a small charge and 100% of the money goes to both our work and the work of The Institute for Cancer Research.
We wish the walkers all the best for a wonderfully fresh-aired and rosy-cheeked time.
