Sponsored Walks 2016

March 30, 2016

CLAPA’s Awareness Week Sponsored Walks have become a well-known tradition and provide us with some of our most memorable photos – just check our Flickr Gallery to see some from last year!

This year’s Awareness Week runs from 7th-14th May, but Sponsored Walks take place during the entire month of May.

During last year’s Awareness Week, 10 CLAPA Sponsored Walks took place around the country raising over a whopping £21,000 to help support the important services that CLAPA provides around the UK. Although fundraising is not the sole reason for these walks, it is still important to the charity so please encourage your friends, family and work colleagues to take part and seek some sponsorship – every penny will make a real difference to the cleft community we support.

  1. Hi … Was just wondering how long the sponsored walk is in Hyde Park or can you just walk as much as you like !!??!! 🙂

    Haven’t been to one before, but my daughter, who was born with a cleft lip, and I would like to attend.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Jo, thanks so much for getting in touch. We’ve emailed you with more information.

  2. Hi Jo,
    we have tried to contact you via email several times to let you know that there is no sponsored walk planned for Brighton this year. Please check your email spam and junk folders.

    Thanks for your support!


  3. Hi, please could you tell me how long the Hyde park sponsored walk is please?

    Many thanks


    • Hi Jenni,

      The walk will take you around the Serpentine in Hyde Park, which is just over 2 miles altogether. It’s a flat and wheelchair/pushchair-friendly route, and even if participants aren’t able to complete the whole walk we would encourage them to join us anyway and complete what they can.

      Hope that helps!
