The Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor and Deputy Mayor Aga Dychton, will be putting on their walking boots this weekend (8 January 2022) for Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers, the support charity which helps over 120 families per year in Hertfordshire.
They will be walking over five miles in a set route across Watford’s 17 parks and open spaces which were awarded Green Flag awards, including the town’s five new Green Flag awarded parks: Garston Park, King George V Playing Fields, Lea Farm Recreation Ground, Oxhey Activity Park and Oxhey Grange/Watford Heath.
Fundraising will go directly to Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers, which provides support to families who have at least one child under the age of five years. Support is provided by volunteers who are normally parents themselves, by visiting families once a week for two to three hours offering support, friendship and practical help in the families' homes.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said: “These last two years have been incredibly tough times and our charities are doing an amazing job supporting those in need, including Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers. The charity walk by Aga and I, is just one of our fundraisers to help local charities continue with the vital help they are giving residents.”
Cllr Dychton said: “With many charities fundraising events or activities cancelled or affected due to coronavirus, I’m really happy we can take part in the Charity Walk to help raise money for Home-Star. They help ensure young children have the very best start in life by living in happy, secure homes with confident parents.”
