Over 60 people joined Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity’s first ‘Big Frensham Walk for Dyslexia’ on Sunday 19th May starting and finishing at our centre in Frensham.
Walkers wound their way past the meandering River Wey along beautiful countryside paths to the sandy heathland and scattered woodland surrounding Frensham Little Pond.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with some choosing the long walk of about 10k, and others the 6k alternative, before making their way back to the centre for well-deserved refreshments, including cakes and lollies kindly provided by the Southern Co-op Rowledge.
The money raised will help the charity support more people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.
Andy Cook, CEO of Helen Arkell, said ‘’What a heart-warming event that was! And not just because the sun was shining and we all got hot! The Big Frensham Walk was more than a walk – it was a coming together of the growing Helen Arkell community. Thank you to everyone who took part and to all the volunteers who helped make the day possible.’’
