£15,000 raised thanks to end of season event

Wombles Walk was a big success

6 May 2022

It was all smiles at the end of our Womble Walk as Haydon braved the heat to cross the finishing line.

The event last Saturday was a fantastic success as it raised over £15,000 for our Foundation.

Foundation Director Phil Rudling said: “The Womble Walk was a tremendous event and we were really pleased with the energy and enthusiasm of all the participants on what was a beautiful day on Wimbledon Common. The event was very much a celebration of the work of the Foundation and had a real community feel to it with young and old walking together."

Sixty walkers took part, ranging from 10 months old to over 70, meaning that there was a sea of blue and yellow on the route from Wimbledon Common to the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

The event is over, but there's still time to make a donation to our Foundation by sponsoring Haydon the Womble.

Visit Haydon's JustGiving page to make a donation.

Don't forget that we've got our Family Fun Day coming up on Sunday 15 May with an opportunity to take on the Dons Abseil Challenge.

See our previous announcement for more details.
