A 4 mile walk in beautiful countryside starting and finishing at Kitley House Hotel. The day will include lawn games for the kids (and big kids!) PLUS a goody bag of snacks to keep you going on your walk and hot drink and food upon you return. This is a great opportunity to walk around a lovely private estate which is not normally open to the public.
The funds raised will enable us to provide the best possible environment for children and adults with complex disabilities, through care education and supported living, enabling them to feel empowered and live life to their full potential every day.
