WALKERS and volunteers are invited to take a stroll in aid of an armed forces charity.

The Thames Challenge 2019 takes place on Saturday, September 7, for Help for Heroes and sends participants on a 12-mile route through West Oxfordshire, starting in the border village of Lechlade.

Walkers will pass through the villages of Radcot and Kelmscott before heading back to Lechlade, with music and a raffle at the finish line.

Last year's event raised £5,200 for the charity and this year's costs £15 to register, which includes an event T-shirt, a medal, transport and walk number.

There are only 100 places on offer, with some already taken. If you are interested in signing up, email thameschallenge@hotmail.com.
