Droitwich Canals Sponsored Walk

Droitwich Canals Sponsored Walk

15 July 2015

On Saturday 19th September, IWA's WRG is organising a sponsored walk along the Droitwich Canals and Ring to help raise funds for its Van Appeal. It wants everyone, WRGies, IWA members, friends, family and members of the public to get involved!

As well as helping raise money for the Van Appeal, joining the walk is a great opportunity to see the Droitwich Canals that have been fully restored, particularly for those who were involved in the restoration of the Hanbury Flight and the Droitwich Barge Lock.

How to get involved:

  • Do the walk
    Take Route 1, a 22-mile walk around the Droitwich Canal Ring or Route 2, a family-friendly 5 mile wander along part of the Droitwich Canals. You can walk as an individual, family, group of friends or you can take part in our team event. It costs £5 per person (under 12s go free) with tea, coffee and cakes provided at the end!
  • Be a marshal or provide tea & coffee from your boat
    WRG is looking for IWA/WRG members who moor their boats along the route who might like to serve refreshments to walkers. We also need a few marshals for the event. If you are interested in helping please get in touch with WRG Head Office team, Jen or Amber, on 01494 783 453 ext 604 or email jenny.black@waterways.org.uk.
  • Sponsor Jude & Mike Palmer
    If we raise over £1,000, WRG Directors, Jude and Mike Palmer, along with their team members will do the walk in fancy dress – ‘Snow White & the Seven Wharfs’.
