Join The Longlands’ Charity Countryfile Ramble
The family-owned and run, Longlands Inn & Restaurant at Tewitfield, is hosting the annual Countryfile Ramble for Children in Need this Sunday 15th October.
The annual Countryfile Ramble sees Countryfile presenters encouraging the British public to lace up their walking boots and go on a life changing stroll in the great outdoors.
BBC Countryfile presenter, John Craven, said: “We’re thrilled to be in our ninth year of Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need. This is always such an exciting time of year for our viewers, and I know they will be supporting the presenters and young people taking on this year’s ramble challenges. Going on a sponsored ramble is a brilliant way to help change the lives of children and young people across the UK for the better – taking part in a ramble is not only good for your wellbeing and physical health but will give projects and local charities the funds they need to give young people a brighter future.”
The Longlands regularly holds guided walks – Robinson’s Rambles – led by co-owner Barry Robinson with his dog, Bella (and originally began with Bella’s predecessor, Joe). The walks are popular with both locals and guests staying at The Longlands and include a cuppa and a breakfast bun prior to departing.
As well as supporting Children in Need, The Longlands Countryfile Ramble is this year being combined with the inn’s Macmillan Coffee Morning, which means there will also be raffle prizes, coffee, and cake to enjoy on the day.
Barry and Bella’s route on Sunday 15th October will be approximately 5-6 miles. Dogs on leads are welcomed, but this particular walk will be unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Donations for both charities will be most welcome on the day.
The Longlands Countryfile Ramble for Children in Need departs from The Longlands at 10.30am with Tea/Coffee & breakfast buns served from 10am. For more information, visit https://longlandshotel.co.uk.
