Get your walking boots on for DENS sponsored walk

 Published on: 20th April 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

DENS ever-popular sponsored walk has been given a refresh for 2019.

Setting off on June 22 from the historic Berkhamsted Castle, there’s a choice of two, five or 10 mile routes.  

Whether you’re a serious stepper, a roving rambler or looking for family-fun, the Castle Walk has something for everyone; even four legged friends are welcome.

With nature quizzes, castle activity packs and a sweet treat for children, it’s the perfect local family day out.

Nicky Maxwell-Braithwaite, DENS events manager has said: “Our gentle buggy and wheelchair-friendly two-mile walk goes along the Grand Union Canal and includes a children’s quiz.”

“The five and 10-mile walks take you along the canal, across beautiful Chiltern countryside with stunning panoramic views, passing historic buildings and picturesque villages. We’re urging everyone to make a whole day of it and are encouraging people to bring along a picnic to enjoy in the castle grounds and soak up the sun after your challenge.”

“We’re so excited to be working with English Heritage and are thrilled to incorporate Berkhamsted Castle, one of the oldest motte-and-bailey castles in England, into our walk. 

“Midland Mainline have kindly offered free spaces at the Berkhamsted Railway Station, so there will be plenty of parking.”

Over a decade of walking, the sponsored walk has helped to fund DENS’ integrated services including their 44-bed Hostel, Day Centre and Foodbank.

This year, with your help, DENS want to raise even more to continue helping to rebuild the lives of local people in Dacorum, as well as highlight the issues that homeless people face.
