The Rotary Walkathon
Thornbury's Community Charity Sponsored Walk.
Generously supported by the Europa Group Insurance Company
Mundy Playing Fields
Monday 24th May to Sunday June 6th 2021
In this its 50th year of community service in Thornbury and surrounding villages, the Covid pandemic has severly restricted Rotary's fundraising activity, particularly its annual Swimarathon which, with other events, has raised in excess of £500,000 in aid of charities and good causes
The Walkathon is being launched as a socially-distanced community effort to provide an opportunity for group fundraising for the benefit of local charity needs.
We want everyone to join in the fun and help raise money by setting themselves a walking challenge which they will complete during Thornbury Walkathon fortnight – 24th May to 6th June.
The event is free to enter and open to individuals, families, or teams of up to six people.
A walking route will be marked out in The Mundy Playing Fields but you might also choose to make an alternative footpath walk your Walkathon challenge.
Our primary beneficiary is Jigsaw Thornbury. a charity supporting families with children up to 25 years who have additional needs or disabilities. Europa Group, the Thornbury-based insurance group with specialism in the motor manufacturer and motorcycle markets, is generously supporting the event
