We thank St Neots Town Council and Giggs & Company for supporting this event.
This year’s Walkalon involved 1 km laps along a marked out area of St Neots Rugby Club field for young children from various primary schools and an interesting 10 km walk around St Neots, Eynesbury and the Eatons for the others who took part. The afternoon, including the entertainment, was free of charge. It was a fun day out for the whole family.
People were walking for a charity of their own choice and the sum raised looks like being around £2500. All sponsorship has to be in by 30th June so the final figure will be announced shortly. Cheques will be sent out to participants to pass over to their chosen charities within the next few days.
Well-known local figure, Martine Brooks, took part in the Walkalon.
Martine is registered blind but it doesn’t stop her from doing much at all. She has driven a car down the A428 (the road was empty at the time) and even flown a plane.
Martine raised £400 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
