Once you have arrived back (don’t forget to book back in), you can then sit and relax outside at the Hall restaurant if the weather is amiable or there is plenty of room inside – a great way to catch up with family and friends!
The Norfolk Family Walk has grown over the years and is Astro Brain Tumour Fund’s biggest fundraising event. In 2020, a total of 894 miles was walked by over 200 adults and children, plus numerous four legged friends. The weather was changeable, the atmosphere was predominately happy.
Each year, many of the walkers are sponsored by family and friends – could you get sponsorship for your efforts this year? You can download a sponsorship form from the link at the top of this article. To get you started here are a few tips:-
Why not set yourself a minimum sponsorship target – say £25 for the one mile walk going upwards to £50 for the ten mile walk. Think how good you’ll feel if you exceed your target!
If you have children walking in your party, consider putting their names on the sponsorship form and go for the sentimental approach!
If your workplace has lots of employees, instead of asking to be sponsored for a random amount, ask everyone for a specific amount, say £2 or £3, to avoid the embarrassment of people not knowing how much to donate or feeling that they need to give more than they want to.
Try to collect the money at the time of asking to avoid having to go through the onerous task of asking for it later. Make sure you point out the Gift Aid box – the charity can claim another 25p for every £1 donated if this is ticked.
Alternatively (or additionally), to make it easier for yourself you could open a Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving page in order for your friends and family to sponsor you online.
