Called ‘The Strawberry Lion 50-50', this charity walk offers enthusiastic walkers and families a chance to take part in a sponsored walk where half the money raised by walkers going to their organisation or chosen charity and half to Yeo valley Lions Club to use for local charities and community projects. The event gives participants the chance to experience a breathtaking charity walk over the picturesque Strawberry Line Heritage Trail, an 8 mile traffic free route through the heart of North Somerset, whilst generating funds for their organisation or charity.
