Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs. Once again the 2016 event surpassed all previous records - the number of participants was 13% up on 2015, there were more fundraising pages leading to a significant increase on the sums being raised online and the total sum raised by the event exceeded the 2015 achievement by about £2K to total over £22K. Thank you to all who have taken part, our business sponsors, Tesco who provide the fruit and bottle water for all walkers and runners and to all those who donate and/or sponsor participants. Donations or sponsorship in order to support the participating charities and local community organisations are invited for The 2017 Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs which will be taking place on Sunday 25 June 2017.
