Tetbury Hospital Hike at Estcourt Park – Sunday 15 May 2022

Don’t forget to put the Tetbury Hospital Walk in your diaries.   I attach the leaflet giving all the details and this letter from the organisers.

Dear All,  

We hope you, your family and friends will take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to participate in the above 7 mile charity walk/run in aid of Tetbury Hospital, by kind permission of Juddmonte Farms.

This event will be a repeat of the very successful charity walk held in 2019 w helped raise £17,363. It will be a great day out for all the family and a chance to meet fellow walkers/runners and help raise vital funds for the Minor Injuries and Illness Unit refurbishment and safety improvements to the hospital driveway.

Please see the attached leaflet for further information, how to enter and how to help.  We do hope that you will be able to support us. 

If you need any more information, please contact Sue Burton on 0771 4040655 or email

Best wishes
