Blagdon Estate charity walk

MEMBERS from Wooden Spoon Northumberland were very fortunate to have a lovely sunny day for the second Charity Walk round the beautiful grounds of the Blagdon Estate home of Lord and Lady Ridley on Sunday 12th May 2019.

More than 70 people young and old plus dogs completed either the full six mile walk or the shorter three mile trail. All then enjoyed a splendid afternoon tea provided by the wives of committee members and supporters.

In total more than £1000 was raised on the day and our thanks goes to all helpers but particularly those who supported us by taking part in the walk. Of special note was the effort of one walker who was sponsored by friends to the extent that he contributed £250 of the income – a fantastic effort.
