Thornbury Rotary is holding as sponsored walking event to raise money for a local charity.

WALKATHON 21 is taking place from May 24-June 6, with participants able to choose a date and time that suits them.

A number of suitable walking routes have been devised that will cater for everybody, from circuits around Mundy Playing Fields, to fully pathed routes around Thornbury, to bigger challenges, like a 10-mile route that incorporates several villages.

The event is a fundraiser for JIGSAW Thornbury, who support families who have children with additional needs or disabilities, but many other local charities and good causes will benefit.

Anyone wishing to participate should contact Mark Wilkinson on to obtain more details and to register their interest.

A fundraising page has been set up with Virgin Money Giving and this can be found at
