The annual Letchworth Rotary Club garden city walk earlier this month saw lots of scouts helping out and families enjoying the weather on the 13.6-mile Greenway route.

More than 250 sponsored walkers taking party made the halfway point and most completed the whole route, raising funds for the rotary club and other charities such as Garden House Hospice, while 1st Baldock Scouts walked to raise money for a trip to Swaziland planned for next year.

A Letchworth Rotary Club spokesman said: “The good news for all the walkers – it was warm sunshine all the way round the 14-mile walkway plus a light breeze to keep everyone nice and cool.

“Our congratulations to all those taking part and our thanks to everyone sponsoring the walkers.

“Initial estimates are that this year’s annual charity walk raised more than £9,000.

“A magnificent effort by all concerned.”

The annual charity walk has raised almost £400,000 since launching more than 20 years ago.
