Following the success of last year’s event our 5k Pub Walk is returning for 2023.

Join us on Sunday 21 May 2023 as we take in the walk from The Cradock Arms through the scenic Aylestone Meadows over to Everards Meadows. From there you can choose to order food and drinks before either joining us to walk back to The Cradock or make your own way back. 

The walk will form part of Lamp’s 2023 fundraising initiative, which take place from 15-21 May 2023, to coincide with this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The Lamp 5k campaign aims to raise much-needed funds for the charity and will focus on the positive impact that physical exercise has on mental health.

On average, it costs around £750 for Lamp to help to navigate someone through the complexities of mental health and empower them to rebuild their life. 

The route is fairly flat so is a nice walk for all abilities. Dogs are also welcome. The walk itself will take around 1 hour 15 minutes at a standard pace. Walking together is a wonderful way to make new friends en route, so we hope the event will help to combat loneliness as well as encouraging people to explore the local area (and enjoy a few drinks).

To join in simply donate a minimum of £5, which will go directly to Lamp’s main 2023 fundraising campaign.
