On Saturday 18th March I took part in the fifth annual Bath Men’s Walk held in aid of Bath Rugby Foundation and Dorothy House Hospice Care. This year 541 men took part in the Walk which means the charities are on track to match last year’s total of £45,000 raised.
The eight-mile walk along the canal path from Winsley to Bath was followed by a screening of two Six Nations matches at the Bath Rugby ground, the first match saw France beat Wales and England lost out to Ireland in the second match
Ex-England rugby player, Duncan Bell attended the walk to support these two well-loved charities. Other local heroes who supported the walk on Saturday were Bob Crampton, ITV weatherman; Todd Blackadder, Director of Rugby and Tabai Matson, Head Coach of Bath Rugby; and Modern Pentathlete Jo Muir, Sports Ambassador for Dorothy House Hospice Care who cheered the men off on the walk.
It was a great day for a good cause – and the walk certainly drummed up a good thirst!
