The sponsored ‘Walk the Southern’ to raise funds for Robert Owen House has its 10th anniversary on Sunday, May 4, starting at 2.30pm from Castletown bypass.
Over the last decade, hundreds have taken this opportunity to stroll, walk or run the iconic five-mile Southern 100 Billown circuit.
A bed has been pushed round the course, some turn up in fancy dress, however it is completed, the purpose is to raise funds for the house in Broadgreen, which accommodates relatives or friends of those undergoing treatment at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, and relies entirely on voluntary contributions. Since this event began £15,000 has been raised.
Registration in advance is required, to do this, email email@example.com or go to the Southern 100 office at 1pm on the day of the walk.
Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult; those 14 to 16 must have their parent or guardian’s written consent. For a sponsor form call 622314 or download it at www.robertowenhouse.org
