The charity walkers started at Inkpen Beacon and walked the first eight miles to Hurstbourne Tarrant. This will be followed by:

Leg 2- Hurstbourne Tarrant to Longparish (8.5 miles) on Sunday 14 July

Leg 3 - Longparish to Stockbridge (8 miles) on Sunday 28 July

The final leg - Stockbridge to Romsey (10.5 miles) on 18 August

Amanda Tincknell CBE, Cranfield Trust CEO comments on the 35-mile walk, “I'm looking forward to walking in the company of colleagues and some of our wonderful volunteers over the 35 miles. We enjoy working together with our client charities and it's great to be walking together too. 

“We’re marking our 35th anniversary at an incredibly challenging time for the voluntary sector. This makes us even more determined to continue providing our free management support services to organisations and their leaders, so they can continue providing essential support and services in their local communities.

“We are raising funds to help us to continue supporting and empowering charities and non-for-profit organisations to deliver their vital services to their beneficiaries. For every £1 that we raise, our staff work with our volunteers to put £4 worth of support back into other charities. 

"We would warmly appreciate any support, which can be donated through our JustGiving page.”
