With just over three weeks to go until this year’s Upbeats Walk on 29 April, Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) is pleased to announce three Charlton legends who will be taking part.
Bob Bolder, Simon Webster and Paul Mortimer are set to do the 9-mile Upbeats Walk, sponsored by DNEL Events, from Charlton Athletic’s Training Ground to The Valley in aid of the Upbeats programme.
The event is the annual fundraiser for the Charlton Upbeats programme, which provides children and adults with Down’s syndrome with regular football sessions and a range of other opportunities such as trips, socials, and work experience opportunities. The Upbeats is the only CACT programme which is entirely funded by donations.
Participants walk through New Eltham skirting around Avery Hill Park before heading down Westmount Road towards Shooters Hill and the halfway point of Charlton Lido & Lifestyle Club for refreshments. From there the walkers will head down towards the Woolwich Ferry before finishing at The Valley. Take a look at the route here.
There are still places to join Bob, Simon, and Paul on the walk, and to help raise as much as possible for the Upbeats. Sign up to take part here!
