Record number take part in Eyebrook sponsored walk
The Rotary Club of Uppingham is celebrating another successful sponsored walk around Eyebrook Reservoir.
The annual sponsored walk in aid of Loros hospice has become a fixture in the calendar of local walking clubs and people come from far and wide to take part.
A record 125 walkers completed the circuit of the reservoir and donations on the day totalled more than £1000 with more to come. It is expected the total is expected to comfortably beat the target of £1,800 set for this year.
Rotary club president Margaret Simpson said: “It was a delight to see so many people enjoy the day and complete the full circuit – some of them even twice. Raising money for such a worthy cause as Loros demonstrates Rotary in action – helping local communities through local activities.”
