On Monday 28th December Knowle and Dorridge Lions will be inviting everyone to join in their 23rd annual Lions Festive Walk at Baddesley Clinton NT House. On the Monday after Christmas the year’s walk will raise funds for the Lily Mae Foundation, Solihull Bereavement Counselling Service, Children’s Liver Disease Foundation as well as a variety of other local causes.
“It means so much to us that the Lions have chosen Children’s Liver Disease Foundation as one of the beneficiaries of their fundraising this year”, said Joanna Oldfield, Head of Fundraising. “We hope that families will add the Lions Festive Walk to their Christmas calendar and join us for a great day out and fundraising opportunity.”
“Last year 1800 walkers stepped out in ideal walking conditions to burn off the Christmas calories and donated a record of over £10,000 on the day,” said Lions organizer Ute Smith. “As usual there will be no charge to take part, so add it on your Festive calendar, tell your friends and relatives and bring a car full.
There will be a choice of 3 new sign-posted circular routes – 3, 5 and 9 miles, all passing through wonderful Warwickshire countryside using country lanes, public footpaths and canal towpaths with a pub along the way. All ages are welcome especially if you get your efforts sponsored, but if arranging and collecting sponsorship will be a hassle you might prefer to walk and just make a donation.
“We are very grateful to the National Trust for allowing us to use Baddesley Clinton House and car parks for the 23rd year” says Ute. “There will be free entry to both House and Gardens for everyone when they finish their Festive Walks and walkers are invited to join the Lions for hot mince pies and mulled wine.”
