Lions Walk roars into action

This year’s Bridgnorth Walk will see the event mark its 50th anniversary – and it’s taking on a brand new identity as the first organised and run by the Bridgnorth Lions Club.  
The Lions have been encouraged by the numbers already signed up and are welcoming large teams raising money for the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and Rupert’s Revenge.
Organiser Peter Parker said, “We’ve already raised over £6,000 by selling sponsorship packages, so the event has paid for itself before it’s started. We’ve had fantastic support from businesses in the town, with significant sponsorship from Grainger & Worrall, Bridgnorth Kitchens and Bathrooms and The Real Bridgnorth Windows. Other changes include a revamp of the walk’s website and an electronic tag-check at the top of Brown Clee.  

“There will be various stalls and entertainment on the High Street, offering visitors more reasons to stay in Bridgnorth on the day of the walk. Now we just need the weather to play ball… but that’s one thing about the day that is really out of our control!”
