Do you fancy a Challenge? Do you want to make a difference? Then the Arundel to Brighton Walk is for you

This fantastic charity event to date has raised over £25,000 for The Dame Vera Lynn Trust which supports babies and children under 5 with Cerebral Palsy and other motor learning difficulties. This year the charity is looking for more walkers to make it bigger and better than ever.

Starting from the beautiful Arundel Castle on the 19th September, with two walk distances available of 35km (8-9 hours) or 12km (2-3 hours) you can choose what would be suitable for you and still enjoy the staggeringly beautiful views and scenery which Sussex has to offer.

Emma Maxwell, a parent that attends the school commented “My little boy goes to a session at this school once a week and it has been an amazing lifeline for us. It has helped us bring our little man on so much to the point that 2 weeks ago he said Mumma for the first time, he us nearly 3 years old so you can only imagine how happy I was. They have also helped us to get the best out of him, to learn to crawl, the steps and to start to play independently something we took for granted with his twin sister. It has also introduced us to many families in a similar position who are all now very good friends of ours and provide amazing support when we have days where we feel down. We are so grateful for fundraising events like these which ensures we can continue attending the school.

So, if you would like to do something INCREDIBLE that will not only give you a great sense of self achievement but benefit an extremely worthy charity, here’s how…..

We have teamed up with the wonderful people at Pied A Terre Adventure to organise this event, so you can be sure that you will be well looked after. There will be regular refreshment stops, plenty of encouragement along the way and a well-deserved hot meal for all on completion. Plus we will have an exclusive prize draw which all fundraisers who reach the £120 fundraising target.will be entered into. You could win a place on the exclusive Bear Grylls Survival Academy course and the use of an Audi Convertible for a week.

To sign up (£30 for adults and £10 for under 16’s accompanied by an adult) please visit or you can call Kirstie Betts at Pied A Terre Adventures on 01403 788994 or email

Not only will this be a memorable occasion for everyone taking part, it also provides an ideal opportunity for you to do something fantastic with friends, colleagues and/or family. The event is open to everyone who likes walking or just fancies a challenge.

There will be an incredible atmosphere on the day itself and everyone is invited to take part, regardless of ability
