Walk with a Fork

Ormiston Families are holding their sixth annual Walk with a Fork event this September, with all proceeds going to support children and young people in the East of England facing complex life challenges.

Taking place at Helmingham Hall on Sunday 2nd September, the eight-mile walk is around the splendid location of Helmingham Hall gardens, hosted by Ormiston Families’ president, Lady Tollemache.

Lady Tollemache, says, “Walk with a Fork is a fantastic day out with a twist. Walkers get to experience beautiful views, architecture and hidden valleys not usually seen by the public whilst enjoying a delicious selection of local food en route.  As you explore the estate, local produce suppliers have created little food-stops – feasts for the eyes as well as the stomach – for all to enjoy and celebrate Suffolk at its finest.”

This year’s food producers include The Tea Rooms at Helmingham, Suffolk Salami, James White Drinks, Hill Farm Oils, Fairfields Farm Crisps, The Cheese and Pie Man, Alder Carr Farm, Betty & Miller Ltd, Morvend & MorBeans and much more. 

Gavin Lamb, Fundraising Manager for Ormiston families, adds, “This is a hugely popular family day out and is welcome to all ages and abilities, even dogs. The event has been running for six years, and has raised over £43,000 to date, and we hope to reach the £50,000 milestone with even more tickets bought this year.”

The event is being sponsored by Aspall Cyder.

• A perfect day out for countryside and food lovers alike. Tickets cost £25 per adult and are free for children under five. To buy a ticket, visit www.ormiston.org/suffolkwalk
