The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is holding a fundraising walk around Carsington Water on Sunday 19 April, an event that may be of interest to the members of the Carsington Bird Club.
The route is 8.5 miles long and there will also be a shorter 1 mile walk which is suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs and small children. The walk will start at 11am outside the visitors centre. Please arrive half an hour early for registration and to pick up the t-shirt and walker’s number.
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national organisation which gives young people between the ages of 8-24 who are in recovery from cancer, the opportunity to take part in the new and exciting experience of sailing. The majority of the young people who sail for the first time have finished treatment and are in the very difficult process of putting their lives back together following treatment.
The Trust was launched by internationally renowned sailor Ellen MacArthur in 2003. As Ellen grew up in a small town called Whatstandwell only 20 mins away from Carsington, it seemed like the perfect location to hold a fundraising walk.
