When? 5pm, Saturday 24 October 2020
What? Walk 1.5, 3, 6, or 9 miles
Where? Anywhere you like!
How much? FREE to sign up below, with a suggested £50 sponsorship pledge or donation
Who? Individually, with people in your household, or support bubble. Please adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines at all times. Limit all groups to fewer than 6 people and observe the 2m social distance rule.

You can choose to sign up and make a one off donation, or sign up FREE and pledge to raise £50 or more through sponsorship.

Once you have signed up, you can set up a JustGiving page for our Moon & Stars campaign here. We’ll be sent a notification and be in touch shortly afterwards.

If you are a group of walkers, you can each set up a JustGiving page then create a JustGiving Team (see how to do that here.) This will show your individual and combined sponsorship totals and even encourage friendly fundraising competition!
