ORGANISERS of the Crown Tavern Walk have been visiting the charities which benefit from their efforts.

Jane Moment, chairman of the Rotary Crown Tavern Charity Walk Committee, saw how the Riding for the Disabled charity, based at Snainton, was spending its share of last year’s £5,150 fund.

Jane’s fellow committee member Tracey Shaw said: “The charity provides a social aspect for disabled people and also a way to keep fit and have a bit of fun.

“The money goes towards the upkeep and care of the ponies and horses which isn’t cheap.”

This year’s walk will take place on May 6 and sponsorship forms are available from the Crown Tavern in Scalby Road.

As usual, there will be a 22 mile hike from Hawsker to the pub and a shorter eight mile walk from Hayburn Wyke.

Participants are picked up from the Crown Tavern and taken to the start point.

It will be the 35th time that the event has taken place.

Tracey added: “We really want to get as many people as possible this year.”

A presentation night, when winners are given trophies and cheques are presented to charities, will be held in June.
