The 2020 White Horse Walk Launches in Aid of Wiltshire Air Ambulance
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, Rygor Commercials Ltd. and Rocking Horse Nursery are calling all walkers, ramblers, hikers and runners to take part in the 2020 White Horse Walk. The Walk is in aid of Wiltshire Air Ambulance, to help support the charity’s provision of essential aerial medical care to the people of Wiltshire and the surrounding areas.
This year’s White Horse Walk will take place on Saturday 26th September 2020. Starting and finishing at Blackland Lakes, near Calne, participants will enjoy a 13-mile circular route through stunning countryside, ending with a celebratory BBQ, provided by the Chippenham branch of RRT.
Valerie Whistler, partnerships coordinator for Wiltshire Air Ambulance commented, “I’m really looking forward to the White Horse Walk again this year. Last year was a fantastic, fun-filled, family and dog friendly walking event, followed by a superb barbecue provided for free by the Rapid Relief Team of Chippenham. The fundraising target of £50 is so manageable for individuals, however when everyone involved raises this small amount, the impact it has on the charity is phenomenal! It costs just over £10,000 each day to keep our aircraft flying and saving lives, which means that every single penny counts. So, get your walking boots on and come and join us for a fabulous day out!”
James Van As, Local Team Leader for RRT said: “The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) is a global charity that provides care and compassion to those in need. The Chippenham RRT team was pleased to serve gourmet burgers to the participants at last year’s White Horse Walk and we are thrilled to be able to support the 2020 White Horse Walk, which helps to raise the much needed funds for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, to help them provide their life saving services to the people of Wiltshire.”
Graham Drake, owner director at Rygor Commercials commented: “Wiltshire Air Ambulance is one of Rygor’s Charities of the Year for 2020 and we are delighted to support an organisation which provides such a vital service to our community, and to be proud members of the Wiltshire Air Ambulance 100 Club. Last year’s White Horse Walk was not only a great success, but a lot of fun for those who took part. We are looking forward to another great event this year, and together we will aim to raise as much money as possible, with the help of a fantastic team of walkers.”
