I have been asked by Sussex Rambler magazine to help publicise this event:
On behalf of our Chairman I have organised a charity walk in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity around the countryside of Hurstpierpoint and Wolstonbury Hill. There is a 3km or a 9km route. This charity is important to our Chairman as they successfully treated his 18 month grand daughter for cancer, she is now a bubbly 10 years old.

The intention/hope is to…Continue
