On 1st August 2019 (Yorkshire Day), Bingley Walkers are Welcome are participating in the ‘Step Out’ sponsored walk organised by Cancer Support Yorkshire. This evening walk starting from Cottingley Community Centre is an occasion to raise money for this great charity which helps “local people with the emotional and physical effects of cancer, through counselling, complementary therapies and group work."
We have volunteered to marshal the event and we helped the organisers creating this 5 km / 3 Miles route which will take you along the River Aire and the village of Cottingley.
The organisers of this walk want it to be a FUN experience for everyone so, as the charity was established in 1988, 80’s Fancy Dress is encouraged but optional. However, whatever you may decide to wear, sensible footwear is absolutely essential.
• Registration 7.00pm – 7.20pm
• Warm up session approx. 7.20pm – 7.30pm
• Start of walk – approx. 7.30pm – Bottled water will be provided.
• Finish – approx. 9.00pm
• Presentation of medals will conclude the evening.
How to raise money for this event?
Cancer Support Yorkshire would be grateful if all participants would please try to raise a minimum of just £30.00 in sponsorship. This amount would cover the cost of providing someone with a counselling or complementary session from our Wellbeing Team.
Details of how to set up a Just Giving Fundraising Page and sponsorship forms (if needed) will be given on receipt of registration.
