Long-Distance Sponsored Walk for Local Disability Football Club
Players, coaches and volunteers of Nantwich Town Disability Football Club are going on a sponsored 44 mile walk on Saturday 9th September 2023 to raise money for their club.
This year their walk will take them from Nantwich to Wrexham AFC, the oldest football club in Wales, then back to Nantwich.
Wrexham was awarded city status as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations and is the seventh city in Wales.
Event organiser, Craig Acton, said: “Our sponsored walk is back for 2023! Last year we did a 40 mile round trip to Chester and back and raised over £600! This year we're going further and hoping to raise even more money to help run our amazing football club!
“We are going to be walking from Nantwich to Wrexham AFC's Y Cae Ras (The Racecourse Ground), then walk back to Nantwich.
“The total walk will be a round trip of 44.4 miles and will be completed in one day on Saturday 9th September 2023.
“We have players, coaches and some volunteers joining us on our walk! And donations go towards the running of Nantwich Town Disability Football.”
All money raised will go to Nantwich Town Disability Football Club towards helping with their transport and the day-to-day running of the club.
