Join WaterAid’s South Downs trek

WALKERS can put their best foot forward to raise vital funds for some of the world’s poorest people.

WaterAid is organising a trek along the South Downs Way to raise charity cash.

The event aims to get at least one team of walkers on 240 coastal paths in selected regions throughout England, Scotland and Wales on September 10.

Money raised will help WaterAid to provide safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to those living in poverty in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region.

Three circular walks will be taking place on the South Downs.

Rebecca Poyntz, events fundraising manager at WaterAid, said, “The three, five and 10 mile circular routes are an exciting new addition to the event, and we’re aiming to make the day really special for those taking part on the South Downs.

“These walks will begin at 11am and will start and finish at the Exceat Visitors Centre in the Seven Sisters Country Park, so there will be plenty of opportunities to meet other walkers along the way.

“To finish the day, everyone will be treated to a cream tea and cakes courtesy of the Farmhouse Restaurant in Exceat.”
