Arlington Bluebell Walk

Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail27th and 28th April 2019

Lions Clubs in the South East are raising funds for the Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex by managing the annual Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail on 27th and 28th April 2019. This year the picturesque walk is in aid of the Lions Head Scanner Appeal. These specialist head scanners allow the ambulance crews to assess the extent of head injuries before deciding how and where to remove an injured person. In the last two years nearly £5000 has been raised for this appeal at the walk.
 
This special event is held at the beautiful Bates Green Farm in East Sussex and over the two days Lions from eight clubs will manage the catering where in good weather attendance can reach 2000 people per day. Every year the Bluebell Walk runs for 6 weeks and 18 local charities share the catering management.
 
Catering profits, together with a generous donation from the gate money made by the owner, John McCutchan, will be donated to Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
 
Lion David Skinner of Uckfield and District Lions Club commented: "Our Lions members are delighted to have the opportunity to continue to raise funds for Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Already South East Lions have enabled the charity to become the only Air Ambulance service in the country to provide a truly 24 hour service. This was achieved by providing all crew members with Night vision goggles at £1,600 a pair. Now we continue to raise money for the Head Scanner Appeal.
 
Please support the Air Ambulance by joining us for the walk over this weekend along with lunch or tea. It costs just £6 for an adult to take part, £5.50 for seniors and £2.50 for children from 3-16 years. There are excellent facilities for the disabled including free mobility scooters and a family of 2 adults and up to 4 children can enter the walk for £15
