Strawberry Lion Walk 


Strawberry Lion Challenge 2019

Once again we were blessed with sunshine for our 8th  annual 50/50 sponsored challenge on the Strawberry Line. Most of the 114 entrants enjoyed a leisurely walk to the Fisheries Cafe at Congresbury, 7 made it to the Millennium Green at Winscombe and a hard core led by Claire Mould the CEO of Cintre ran to Axbridge and back.

This year we had an excellent turnout from our designated charity Cintre, who with St Valliers FC fielded 58 entrants, The 3rd Yatton Brownies team totalled 31 and Yatton WI , Spotlight Sparklers and Young Carers North Somerset were very well represented. Allan Burn aka 007 maintained his unbroken record of entering every year since inception.

We are indebted to our sponsors for supporting this event and are hopeful that once all sponsorship funds have been received that we will be able to make a significant donation to Cintre who do such excellent work supporting those with learning and physical difficulties in our community.

2018

Almost 100 walkers, runners and cyclists set off on our 7th Strawberry Lion Challenge on Sunday 20 May in glorious sunshine.  The largest group of over twenty represented Cintre, a charity that helps adults with learning difficulties.  Some of the team ran to Axbridge whilst most of the others went to the Millennium Green at Winscombe.  Our youngest walker Susanna Fernandes aged 2 made it all the way to the Fisheries cafe and back.
We were also very well supported by Yatton WI, 1st Wrington brownies, 1st and 3rd Yatton brownies, 2nd Yatton guides and the Young Carers team. Allan Burn collected number 007 and maintained his unbroken record of completing every walk since 2011.
Once again all our entrants were very grateful for the water and drinks donated by Cheddar Water and Lovely Drinks and for the snacks donated by the Co-op.
The Lions 50% of the sponsorship is designated to go to the Springboard Opportunities Group, this will amount to 1700 out of the total of 2881 collected as a result of the day. 
Sincere thanks go to all those who supported this tremendous effort.
