Home-Start Chichester & District was one of the many charities taking part in the Just Walk event held at Goodwood on Saturday, 13th May. The event was run by Across the Divide and up to 1000 walkers took part in the event, walking distances ranging from 10km, 20 km, 30km, 40km and the big 60km.
Home-Start Chichester & District was very well supported with some 15 walkers, at least half of whom walked 30kms or more and raised over £2,000 in the form of sponsorship for the charity. The walks started off at the racecourse and, depending on the distances, followed footpaths and bridleways across the South Downs National Park to Madehurst, Bignor and wound their way back across the South Downs Way to above Heyshott beforeheading back south through Charlton back up to the racecourse.
It was a perfect spring day and the walkers enjoyed the Sussex countryside with the added benefit of coffee stops and lunch which were provided, breaking up what was a very long day with the30km walk taking almost 7 hours to complete.
Thank you to all our walkers and sponsors – we could not have done this without you!
