Bartlow 3 Counties Charity Walk 2023

Bartlow 3 Counties Charity Walk 2023

Sworders are proud to sponsor the Bartlow 3 Counties Charity Walk 2023, a charity event which has raised over £180,000 over the last 18 years for a number of fantastic causes.

13 April 2023

Held every April, the Bartlow 3 Counties Charity Walk covers Essex, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. The event has raised over £180,000 for three amazing local causes:

Addenbrookes Cancer Research Hospital

'Set to open in 2027, the Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital will change the story of cancer.

This brand-new, purpose-built hospital is being designed in partnership with patients. It will bring together the clinical excellence of Addenbrooke’s Hospital, the scientific expertise of the University of Cambridge and Cancer Research UK, and the commercial capability of industry partners under one roof.'

Tom's Trust

'We have funded Clinical Psychology to support these children’s mental health in an innovative service at Addenbrooke’s and are now seeking funding to implement a new role. The new Tom’s Trust psychologist will provide mental health support to teenagers who have been through brutal treatment for their brain tumours. Between the ages of 14-19, they move from children’s to adult services and this new role will enable them to find the path to living their best independent adult lives.'

'With this innovative role, we will provide a full-time psychologist, based in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust to support this unique group of young people with such complex needs.

The cost of this role will be £40,000 per year so support from a local event such as the 3 Counties Walk will make a huge impact on our fundraising efforts.'

Bartlow Church Restoration

'Sunday by Sunday this Church is used by a small but devoted congregation, and this village of 85 adults and 23 children contributes to the upkeep of this building: help has been forthcoming from the Department of the Environment and we still need more money to repair the windows and decorate the interior. We have received this Church on trust from past generations and we hope to pass it on in good repair. Much has been accomplished but much still needs to be done.' 

The walk offers four different routes: ranging from a 1 mile dinosaur trail suitable for children to a 13 mile hike '(a 3 counties walk to the place where Cambridgeshire, Essex and Suffolk meet.)'

There will be a variety of refreshments served both along the route and before/after you have completed the walk. These include local beers, tea, coffee, ice cream from Saffron Ices, Kitsch Hen will be selling their scotch eggs and savories and other snacks such as pizzas, bacon rolls etc will be on sale also.
