Harbour hosting Help for Heroes charity 5km walk on Sunday, April 17

THE ROTARY Clubs of Sovereign Harbour and Eastbourne Sovereign will be striding out on a sponsored 5km walk on Sunday, April 17, in aid of Help for Heroes.

The walk starts at 11am from the back of Cineworld at the Crumbles, with pre-walk activities starting at 10am.

Eastbourne mayor Carolyn Heaps will be at the finish line to welcome back the walkers.

Don Perman, President of the Sovereign Harbour Rotary Club, said, “This is a great opportunity to take a pleasant Sunday morning walk around the marina while supporting a very worthy cause and finish with Sunday lunch at the popular Sovereign Harbour Waterfront.”

Stephen Lloyd MP added, “It is a cause very close to my heart and I hope that it will be well supported, and will raise as much as possible for this worthwhile charity.”

Help for Heroes (H4H) is an independent British charity, founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help members of the Armed Forces who have been injured in the course of serving their country.

Participation in the walk is open to anyone aged 18 or above and the minimum registration fee is £5.

Registration for those under 18 is free, but each under 18 person must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Participants are strongly encouraged to seek personal sponsorship to ensure that the charity receives the maximum possible amount. Maximum number of participants is limited to 500, so register early to avoid disappointment.

The walk is being supported by Sussex Newspapers, with sponsors Prudential Property Investment Management, Carillion, Pevensey Coastal Defences, Sterling Automotive, Sovereign Harbour Residents Association, Weston Executive Travel, and Capital Mechanical Services.
