‘Go the Extra Mile’ Charity walk for Save the Children.

Walk 20 miles on the historic Via Francigena, Canterbury to Dover to raise funds for the education of refugee children around the world.

Following the success of the charity walk on the Via Francigena in 2016 for Save the Children, which raised over £2,000 and saw 42 people walk the full twenty miles from Canterbury to Dover, the walk on 7 October, 2017 seeks to raise even more funds to aid in particular the education programmes of Save the Children - 28 million children are currently out of formal education due to conflict.

The walk on the historic pilgrimage route will be organised and led by experienced pilgrim Julia Peters. Julia walked the 1200 miles on the Via Francigena in 2015 from Canterbury to Rome and is now committed to promoting the route and the benefits of long-distance walking including health and appreciation of natural and man-made heritage.
