The 11th “Walk or Ride!”
This was held on Sunday 28th April 2013. Starting from Bicton College, East Budleigh [on the B3178, South of Colaton Raleigh] The Rotary Club of Exmouth & District are grateful for the very generous assistance given by Bicton College which enables this event to take place once again. Appreciation is also given to Otterton Mill and The Otter Inn for their help and for the financial support given by both Palmers Whitton & Laing and Ladram Bay Holiday Park.
The 10th “Walk or Ride!”
The 10th “Walk or Ride!” after postponement in April due to wind, rain and flooding, the 10th “The Walk or Ride!” took place on Sunday 23rd September 2012. The conditions were atrocious, but 116 people braved the weather and raised more than £8,000 for their chosen causes. Well done and congratulations to everyone who took part, you were all magnificent in very wet conditions and with your sunny smiles and indomitable spirit showed the best of human nature. Thank you all who helped to organise the event and all who took part. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
How it works : We Arrange the Walk or Ride routes – We manage the event – You attend and raise sponsorship for your organisation
Raise Money for Charity and Have Fun “The Walk or Ride!” is a sponsored “family fun” charity event organised by The Rotary Club of Exmouth & District for walkers or cyclists wishing to raise funds for their favourite charity, club or good cause. But, it equally may be enjoyed by anybody who would like a pleasant outing in East Devon’s beautiful countryside. To help you to use this opportunity and raise money for your cause or Club: We will be happy to assist you with promotions amongst your supporters by providing a personalised PDF of our poster displaying your Charity or Club’s name and logo. Sponsorship may be raised under ‘Gift Aid’ by utilising our sponsorship form downloaded from this website. On receipt of the money from the walker or cyclist, The Rotary Club of Exmouth & District will recover tax on behalf of your cause (remember, the tax recovery is worth an additional 25p for every qualifying £1 donated!). Alternatively, your charity may issue their own sponsorship forms to its supporters and deal with the tax recovery themselves; if this route is taken, the Rotary Club do ask to be advised of the total amount of money raised. Adult entrants are invited to pay a donation of £5 per walker / cyclist over the age of 16 to ‘The Rotary Club of Exmouth & District’ to help defray costs, any surplus will be placed into the club charity fund and used for good charitable purposes. All entrants are encouraged to raise sponsorship money.
