A walking event aimed at celebrating Kettering’s history and culture is to be held for the first time in August.

The event, which is raising money for a trio of good causes – Help for Heroes, and Kettering mayor Keli Watts’ chosen charities the William Knibb Centre and the Ronald McDonald House charity – is being organised by a dedicated team and is being sponsored by Kettering’s Lighthouse Theatre.

It is taking place on Sunday, August 18, and will see walkers set off from Kettering’s Market Place on a four-mile route to the Masque Theatre in Barton Seagrave.

Organiser Gregg Nunney said: “There’s something for all the family.

“The walk will be accompanied by a visual treasure hunt with a selection of questions relating to the history and heritage of the town.

“Everybody who gets them right will go into a draw to win a great family prize at the Masque when the day is over.”

There will be no entry fee for the walk. Instead, people taking part are being asked to make a donation and every penny raised is being split between the three charities.

A fun day at the Masque Theatre will greet walkers completing the route.
