Stairway Raise £1000 for Leukaemia Charity


12th September Virginia Water was the venue for a sponsored walk by more than 50 members of the Stairway team, family and friends. Their objective was to help raise £1000 for the Anthony Nolan Trust, which helps save the lives of people with Leukaemia.

Late summer sunshine and temperatures around 20 degrees made Virginia Water a wonderful setting for the walk. The outside perimeter of approximately 5 miles encloses part of what used to be the largest man-made body of water in the British Isles. The woodlands surrounding the lake have been continuously planted since the middle of the eighteenth century.  Visitors can still admire, on the south bank, the ornamental cascade from the 18th century and a ‘Roman temple’ built from columns and lintels brought from the ancient city of Leptis Magna in the early 19th century. One of the area's more recent additions, and particularly popular with the children, is a towering 100-foot high Totem Pole, a gift from the government of British Columbia.

Lunch was provided in the Saville Garden restaurant where everyone could rebuild their energies before competing in various often hilarious activities. Rounders was particular popular and gave a good insight to peoples’ competitive nature. A great day out and a terrific result.  

We are delighted to have reached our goal and thank participants and their friends for their contribution.
