Crohn’s and Colitis UK walk and cycle

By Chloe Hewitt

Crohn’s and Colitis UK’s Leicestershire and Rutland group will be holding a sponsored walk and cycle in Rutland.


The event aims to raise money and awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and is set to take place on April 30 at Rutland Water Nature Reserve.

All routes will begin and finish at Whitwell Car Park on the North Shore of the reserve, with a number of different routes to choose from.

The different routes include a short two mile walk to the bluebells and back or a longer three mile walk along the shore.

For those who are more energetic there are cycle routes all around the water, which are around 17 miles long.

Diann Hewitt, whose daughter suffers from Crohn’s Disease, said: “It is for a great cause and I really hope many people get involved.

“Many people do not realise how horrible this disease is and seeing my daughter suffer is something any parent would not like to see their child go through.

“If you cannot walk, even the smallest donation can go towards more research into IBD.”

You can still go along on the day and show your support without walking or cycling, as there will be food and entertainment as well as information at hand to learn more about IBD.

Register now online or telephone on 07434731970.
