Story

Join us on Saturday 18 August for the epic Triple Welly Challenge, walking from the Wellington in Elm Grove, to the Duke of Wellington in Shoreham, and then back along the coast to the Duke of Wellington in Brighton for a fabulous after party to celebrate completing the 12 mile challenge - you can look forward to fun, food and fabulous entertainment including karaoke hosted by the legendary Betty Swollocks!



How to get involved


The walk is completely free to join but please email brighton.welly@gmail.com so we can get an idea of numbers and also keep you up to date with any changes to arrangements. Please include your mobile number in case we need to contact you on the day of the walk.

Please ask sponsors to donate directly through this page or set up your own JustGiving page in aid of Maternity Worldwide (registered charity no. 1111504). 

Itinery

On Saturday 18 August, we're meeting from 10am at the Wellington (53 Elm Grove, BN2 3ET) to set off at 11am.

Walking inland, we're aiming to get to the Duke of Wellington, Shoreham (368 Brighton Rd, BN43 6RE) around 2pm, so there's plenty of time to stop for lunch.

The last leg of the walk sets off from the Duke of Wellington, Shoreham at 4pm and we aim to arrive at the Duke of Wellington, Brighton (70 Upper Gloucester Rd, BN1 3LQ) at approximately 7pm.

Why are we doing this?

Maternity Worldwide is a charity which works in low-income countries to help women and girls access the high quality maternal health care they need to be able to give birth safely.

We want to help Maternity Worldwide raise £15,000 to support Pirimiti Hospital, Malawi to buy a new anaesthetic machine. The existing machine recently broke and can't be repaired so currently, it isn't
possible to give safe general anaesthetics at Pirimiti (only spinals are possible). We want to support Sister Mary and her medical team to be
able to buy a new machine (costing £15,000) so that life saving surgery, including caesarian sections, can take place again.
