Superhero, Spiderman, will start the 6th Annual Horsham Riverside Walk on Saturday 6 July, it has been announced.
He had heard that the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School in Horsham will benefit from sponsorship and cash collected on the day, and kindly offered to leap in to help. He’s not ‘Far From Home’ and will happily pose for photos beforehand.
Organisers of the free event, Horsham Town Community Partnership, are hoping for a fine day as a record number of Walkers is expected on the 13-mile (21 km) route. They emphasise that enjoying the 6th Annual Walk is the first aim of the day and collecting cash is not a condition of joining the walk. However, in previous years, it has been found that people can be very generous towards a local cause.
Starting from the Rugby Club in Hammerpond Road at 10 am, stops for refreshments and toilets will be made at Chesworth Farm, Warnham Nature Reserve and New House Farm.
During the morning, there will be a competition for children up to 14 years of age. Spiderman will present a certificate to everyone who completes the Walk at the Rugby Club by 5 pm. The bar will be open from 3 pm to refresh dry palates.
Further details of the 2019 Walk are shown on the web site: www.horsham.community and would-be participants are asked to register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 01403 269384.
