The ‘YOMP’ Fund Raising Walk for the Royal Star and Garter Home May 2014

You may be aware The Royal Star & Garter Homes have moved to Surbiton from Richmond Hill. The ‘Yomp’ is a fund raising event for the charity of 6 or 15 miles on May 11th 2014.
The route will take in many local landmarks of Richmond park, Wimbledon common and the towpath and aims to provide an all day activity for familes, friends and all ages.

Below would be someting suitable to send to members:
Family fun day out for all ages commemorating, remembering and raising funds for The Royal Star & Garter Homes who have moved to new premises in Surbiton. This is presently Richmonds only WW1 centenary event for 2014.

The Royal Star & Garter Homes was established in 1916 to care for the severely disabled young men returning from the battlegrounds of the First World War. Today we provide brilliant care to the whole military family in our friendly, modern and comfortable homes.

There are 6 mile and 15 mile options. The 6 mile is largely flat and takes in the river towpath and the history of Ham and Petersham.

The 15 mile takes in Richmond park, Wimbledon common and towpath (with a couple of short cut cheats if required!). Notable landmarks are included along the way with plenty of pitstops, refreshments and support.

All entrants receive an event t-shirt.
