Together we can

David Sime memorial walk

Jenny Toomer, a friend of the charity for many years, kindly hosted the ninth annual David Sime memorial walk at Venthams Farm near Petersfield on Sunday 5th May. Over 130 people and their four-legged friends rambled, strode or marched around one of the four different routes which catered for every level of fitness. All the paths gave the opportunity to see far-reaching views, bluebells and local wildlife.

Walkers were fuelled by coffee, tea and cakes and could stop en route at the Richard Hollington memorial bench. The walks ended with a barbeque in Jenny’s wonderful garden. It was good to see old friends from previous years returning to support the charity again, as well as meeting people who were attending the event for the first time.

Thanks also to the loyal band of volunteers and all the staff who helped make the event such a success. Over the years, the walk has raised thousands of pounds towards the training of assistance dogs for injured and disabled service men and women.
