Bridge the Gap

Charity walk around Cambridge University grounds


On Sunday 14th September you are invited to take part in a picturesque walk which will give you a behind the scenes look at 10 of the University’s colleges.

Bridge the Gap breaks down the barriers between town and gown and is a fantastic family day out.

It is wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and brings together people of all ages and abilities.

The 2014 route includes St John’s, Trinity, King’s, Darwin, St Catharine’s, Corpus Christi, Emmanuel, Christ’s, Sidney Sussex and Jesus Colleges.

Participants will be treated to music from the Arco Iris, Waterbeach brass band and Sing! Choirs.

The Society of Cambridge Tourist Guides will also be on hand to talk about the history of the Colleges and grounds.

At the end of the walk a lively atmosphere in the tea tent will welcome you back to Jesus Green.

Join us for this special day out and help us reach our fundraising goal of £50,000 in support of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Press Relief, two valuable charities working within our local community.

This is a unique opportunity to see some of the fantastic Cambridge colleges and we’d love for you to join us.

And don't forget corporate teams are also welcome as the event which is now in its 13th year forms a great team building exercise for many local companies


"I’ve lived in Cambridge for 30 years and never seen what was behind that fence." was just one of the comments of a previous participant

Arthur Rank Hospice is dedicated to providing specialist palliative care and support to adult patients and their family, friends and carers.  All care is provided free of charge, and is offered to people living throughout much of Cambridgeshire.  The aim is to enable patients and those close to them to live as fully as possible, and make the most of the time that's left.

Press Relief was founded in 2003, with the aim of using the influence of the Cambridge News and all the other publications within the Cambridge Newspapers group, to its best effect - to help raise cash for local charities. Nearly £540,000 has been raised and funds have been awarded to many local groups and individuals in need
