National Trust supports Five Valleys Walk

9th August 2017

This September the National Trust is once again supporting Meningitis Now’s Five Valley’s Walk


The popular event is returning for its 30th Anniversary and there’s still time for you to sign up for Five Valleys Walk and take part.

Walkers can enjoy the scenery and nature as they ramble over National Trust land at Standish Woods and Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons.

The National Trust has kindly agreed to let our walkers cross their land for free, which is a very welcome gesture of support.

This year you can also learn more about the National Trust at the checkpoint located at Minchinhampton School. Stop for a break and find out more about the many places the National Trust cares for and how you can get involved and support their vital conservation work.

Kirsty Owen-Hayward, event fundraiser for Meningitis Now said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the National Trust for their continued support."

"The Five Valleys walk is a really popular event and we are so grateful that thanks to the generosity of the National Trust, our walkers will once again be able to enjoy the beautiful countryside as they stroll over National Trust land."

Lisa Edinborough, Visitor Experience Manager for the Cotswolds National Trust said: “We are pleased to be working closely with and supporting Meningitis Now and their great Five Valleys Walk event."

"We will be there on the day encouraging the walkers and chatting to them about our work."

"Walking is a great way to keep fit and healthy, so we encourage people to sign up to this year’s Five Valleys walk and enjoy some of the beautiful countryside that we look after.”

Why not join us on Sunday 24 September and enjoy a walk through the beautiful Cotswold countryside, and show your support for Meningitis Now.
