Sponsored Walk for Cuba
Campaign News | Wednesday, 29 May 2013
Sunday 14 July 2013 11am - 4pm
Join us on a wonderful walk through the beautiful Chess Valley to raise funds for the Cuba Solidarity Campaign.
The Walk for Cuba, starting at Little Chalfont, is a 6? mile circular walk and will take 3 hours at a leisurely pace. A shorter walk of 3 miles is also offered for those that can’t manage the full route.
Your journey begins and ends in the village of Little Chalfont near the Chalfont and Latimer tube station on the Metropolitan underground line. It takes in three beautiful villages and two imposing country houses as it weaves its way through the varied and unspoilt countryside in and around the Chess Valley.
There is something for everyone on this truly unique walk. Wildlife lovers will relish the chance to spot herons, woodpeckers and kingfishers; children will enjoy the chance to walk through fields of cows, horses and Shetland ponies; lovers of history will marvel at the ancient Tudor manor in Chenies and real-ale enthusiasts can find refuge in the wonderful pubs along the way. All this set within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty across the rolling hills of the Chilterns.
The Walk for Cuba is a sponsored event to raise much needed funds for the work of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign. It also celebrates the 60th anniversary of the symbolic start of the Cuban revolution on 26 July 1953 when the revolutionaries made the famous and audacious assault on the Moncada army barracks in Santiago de Cuba.
Each walker will be asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £30 (£5 children) and will receive a special Walk for Cuba t-shirt and badge. CSC will organise some celebratory activities along the route and there will be a co-ordinated refreshment stop at one of the lovely historic public houses along the way.
Why not get a group of friends to sign up with you and enjoy a wonderful summer’s day out together and support Cuba and the work of CSC at the same time.
