This popular challenge in its 6th year is a 35km walk following the South Downs from Arundel to Brighton. The event raises money for the amazing work of the Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity
Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity has been supporting families and children under five years old with cerebral palsy and other motor learning difficulties since 2001, and has now embarked on an exciting new chapter in their history. Moving to Cuckfield in 2017, where they opened their new Children’s Centre, which now includes a brand new Sensory Room and Magic Carpet, and following the success support of last year’s Arundel to Brighton Walk, the Charity are now launching their new Outreach Service for its first year.
As the Charity receives no statutory funding and relies entirely on voluntary funding and the support of the community, the A2B Walk is a vital part of their events calendar and the only annual event dedicated solely to supporting the work of Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.
Starting from spectacular Arundel Castle, the walk follows much of the South Downs Way, taking in stunning scenery and amazing views en route to the finish point at Devils Dyke.
