We have 3 major events that form the main core of our fundraising. However the Covid Pandemic has had a significant impact on these with this year’s Fun Run and heart of England Bike Ride both cancelled. We are hoping that the Festive Walk may go ahead although perhaps in a different form:
|Knowle Fun Run||Heart of England Bike Ride||Festive Walk|
|Having raised over £0.8m for charity in its first 35 years our Fun Run continues to go from strength to strength. Held at Arden Academy on the 3rd Sunday in May each year this 5 mile 2 lap Fun Run has proved a popular event. Registration opens on-line on the 1 January each year. Click on the events link for further details.||Now in its 14th year offering a choice of signposted circular rides for all ages and abilities of up to 50 miles through the Warwickshire countryside, this event held in July, starts from Packwood National Trust House. Further details available on the events link.||This popular annual event held between Christmas and New Year starts from Baddesley Clinton National Trust House, with a variety of routes to suit all abilities. After you walk enjoy traditional mulled wine and hot mince pies. Click on the events link for the latest details. Bring your friends and family to walk off the Christmas pud.|
In addition to our main events we also have some smaller events that are just as important to us: Easter Egg raffles – held exclusively at the Black Boy, tickets are sold over a two week period with the prize being a luxury basket Easter eggs and other chocolate goodies.
We can also be seen at Dorridge Day in September with our popular “Ball in the bog” game and on Knowle High Street during our annual Spring tin shake.
