Discover Volunteering 5 Mile Charity Walk

Welcome to the Stamford Branch of The Royal British Legion

Darren Rawnsley, Amber Stokes and Bill Turner attended Discover Volunteering's first annual charity event on the 16th September, which pulled in 14 local charities and businesses including Exotic Pet Refuge, Grantham Rotary Club, Scouts, Women's Aid, Oxfam, Teenzone, Action on Hearing Loss, YMCA, Park Air Systems, Sense, Brownies and Not all Bad, raising funds for our charities and projects.

The sponsored walk started at Discover Volunteering's base at Eventus in Market Deeping, and we followed our maps through the industrial estate, onto the streets of Market Deeping and back again through fields, where we finished at Eventus and were welcomed with a fantastic spread of food put on by Sonia at the Oasis café.

The walk also involved a brilliant quiz, which required us all to be ultra observant, looking out for the answers around us on the walk. The quiz also included some general walker-based questions at the end. And we won it of course! The day was rounded off with a fantastic raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses based at Eventus.

A big thank you to all of our sponsors, who helped us collect over £200 for the branch and of course Chris, Pete, Adam, Chris and Leoncia at Discover for organising the event and bringing us all together.
