How Far Will You Go to Make a Difference?
A 12k walk through the beautiful Pewsey Vale.
Less arduous and shorter walk available. Please ask at least a couple of days in advance so we have driver available.
The 2020 and 2021 walks were postponed because of the pandemic. We plan to organise a walk for May 2022, all being well.

Afrikaya’s 6th sponsored walk!
10.00 check in ready for 10.30 start
A sponsored ‘walktoschoolathon’ for Afrikaya. This 12K walk through the beautiful Pewsey Vale is almost the distance that children in New Yundum, The Gambia [some as young as 3 years old] were walking to school each day, including crossing a busy 4 lane highway – the main Banjul to Brikama highway. The walk is in its sixth year – by popular demand.
Start and finish: Wilcot Village Hall, Wilcot, Nr Pewsey, Wiltshire, SN9 5NN
Although there is no registration fee, you are expected to raise sponsorship or make a personal donation in lieu of sponsorship. Suggested amount:
under 17s £5.00; under 12s £2.00
Wilcot Village Hall will be open all day. Once the walkers have set off, we will be serving tea/coffee and cake to anyone who wants to call in. Lunch will be available from 12.30. Menu: soup and crusty bread; ploughman’s.
Call in and find out more about Afrikaya.
