Lodge members awarded certificate for raising £2,300 for The Royal Marsden Hospital after charity walk

Well it’s been a funny old year so far because of the crazy times we are all living through. However, that hasn’t stopped our intrepid band of “Wifle Walkers” raising money for charity.

Their latest effort has been in aid of The Royal Marsden Hospital.

They had all signed up to do the actual Marsden March between the Chelsea and Sutton Royal Marsden hospitals in remembrance of one of the member’s wives.

She had been treated with such care and compassion for a period of eighteen months at both Marsden hospitals during her fight with Pancreatic cancer.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the Royal Marsden had to cancel two previous dates set for the walk.

This setback did not stop our walkers who decided to do their own version of the walk.

So it was decided to walk over a similar distance, approximately 12 miles, in this case walking part of the North Downs Way between Farnham and Guildford.

Setting off in two separate bands of six, at different times, to comply with the current guidelines, they completed the course in just over four hours in perfect walking weather.

Their effects raised approximately £2,300.

Well done to all that took part!
