Suffolk-based food and drink producers will be doing their bit to bolster walkers’ energy levels at a charity’s flagship fundraising event.
Walk with a Fork, at Helmingham Hall on Sunday, September 3 is an eight-mile walk around the 16th-century hall and estate on the outskirts of Ipswich, which will be raising money for Ormiston Families.
This year’s new route, which has been chosen by Lady Tollemache of Helmingham Hall, who is also Ormiston Families’ president, will be interspersed with welcome food and drink stops, courtesy of Suffolk producers.
These include The Fish Hut, James White Drinks, Hillfarm Oils, Suffolk Salami, Fairfield Farm Crisps and The Cheese & Pie Man.
Gavin Lamb, relationship and events manager at Ormiston Families, said: “We’ve been so pleased with the success Walk with a Fork has had over the years, and are especially looking forward to bringing the event back to Helmingham Hall this year.
“The combination of the beautiful Suffolk countryside and delicious local food and drink make for a great day out, and all while raising vital funds which allow us to continue our work with children, young people and families across the East of England.”
Mackenzie-David Events, which will provide the main lunch stop, will also be sponsoring the event, along with Aspall.
Tickets are £23 per person and children under five go free. Dogs are also welcome.
