The whole ethos of the Saffery Rotary Walk is to raise and distribute money to local charities who do so much for so many in our own community in a myriad of ways. For the 25th Walk, having sifted through many applications, 25 charities have been selected. Take a look at the list to see the broad range of projects and initiatives we hope to support. This support is only made possible by our walkers walking and their sponsors sponsoring them. A big thank you in advance to all the 2023 walkers and supporters for helping improve the lives of many
