Thank you to everyone THat took part in the 21K4CA
We had 112 walkers and 12 dogs registered. The youngest participant to complete the 21 km was only 7 years old. So far we have raised £3700 for Christian Aid projects to provide life-saving new homes to poor communities at risk from disasters. Thank you so much!

Since it began in the 1960’s, the annual East Herts Christian Aid walk has raised more than £500,000. In 2016, following its 50th year, it had been decided to end the walk because of the increasing difficulty of attracting walkers. But a new committee was formed to try and keep it going. Since then, we have worked hard to more widely advertise the walk as well as make it more manageable but the number of walkers has continued to drop. Following the 52nd walk, the committee has unanimously but reluctantly decided to end the walk. We are very sad to end this great tradition, but we wanted to leave on a high note. We give thanks for the money raised for Christian Aid and to all the people who have taken part over the years, both in walking and volunteering their time.
Although there will be no organised walk next year, there is nothing to stop individuals continuing to walk the 21K4CA route and donating money to Christian Aid.
