Former BBC News presenter, Nicholas Owen, is calling for keen walkers to lace up their boots and take part in the Surrey Hills Hike on Sunday 20 March.

The walk is being held by The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Participants can take in the sights of Surrey during the hike which covers local areas including Walton-on-Hill and Mogador and choose either a five-mile or ten-mile option to enjoy with family and friends. All willing walkers taking part will receive a medal, a warm drink and a big cheer at the end.

Nicholas, based in Surrey, and a long-time Ambassador and volunteer driver for the charity, will be seeing off walkers at 10:00am from the charity’s headquarters in Tadworth on Sunday 20 March. Having supporters on site is a big step for The Children’s Trust, after being forced to close its doors to many visitors and volunteers due to the pandemic.
