It's a long way to Tipperary!
When welovebearwood found out that Warley Woods'fundraiser this year is to collectively walk/run/crawl/stagger the 340 odd miles from Bearwood to Tipperary we wanted to find out more.
Viv Cole, Warley Woods Trust Manager told us "This will be our third Walk for the Woods this year – our annual fundraiser and we are trying to make it a little different.
As Saturday 17th March is also St Patrick’s Day we have set ourselves the collective challenge to walk or run the Long Long 260 miles from Warley Woods to Tipperary.
We’d love to beat last year’s fundraising total of £1,805 plus gift aid. So please come and walk, or sponsor someone else. Dress up, wear something green (or both) or come in a group whatever makes it fun for you.
There is a new route for 2012, an exclusive badge for everyone who takes part and a prize draw for every fundraiser who raises over £50, £100 and £300. It is a Long Long Way to Tipperary – so we need all the help we can get!
Sponsor forms and continuation sheets are available on our downloads page or follow the link here. Every penny raised goes towards funding the maintenance of our lovely site or supporting our events and activities.
If you can’t walk on the day, then what about sponsoring Viv Cole, the Trust Manager who will be walking dressed as Scooby Doo.
Pet dogs are welcome but need to be on a lead. Donations can be made through the Trust’s online shop and just drop Viv an email to say that the donation is sponsorship firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your support."
