Join the Chairman on the March for Marsden

PR2266/JB/AH - 13/02/2020

Mid Sussex District Council’s Chairman, Councillor Trumble is organising a circular walk through the Mid Sussex countryside to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, and he’d like your company.

Are you a walker and enjoy the great outdoors? Or perhaps fancy a personal challenge to raise funds to support those affected by cancer? Then join our Chairman, Councillor Trumble and start British Summer Time with a circular route in the picturesque Mid Sussex countryside to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity on Sunday 29th March.

You can choose between a 3km walk around the lovely woodland surroundings of Hurstpierpoint or a more challenging 9km route which includes the spectacular Wolstonbury Hill. The walk is family friendly and you can even bring your dog, on a lead of course!  For sponsor forms and to register online, go to, phone 01444 477003 or call into the Council offices in Oaklands Road.

Each Chairman chooses charities to fundraise for during their terms of office, Councillor Trumble’s chosen charities are the Children's Unit at The Royal Marsden Hospital and Woodlands Meed School.

“The Royal Marsden is an organisation very close to my heart, as they supported my family over a number of years whilst my granddaughter received treatment for cancer from the age of 18 months,” said Councillor Trumble.

“Thankfully she is now a bubbly 10-year old, a testament to the care and specialist treatment provided by the doctors and staff at the hospital. However, I am acutely aware that not every child has such a happy story to tell, and I am determined to help promote and support an organisation that tirelessly works to support people through their darkest time.

“I’d like to thank our sponsors Collinsons, Swan Press and Paul Masson Funerals for supporting the March in Mid Sussex. I hope many people will join us for this special event.”
