Bridge the Gap


Charity walk around Cambridge University grounds

 
 
 
 

On Sunday 13th September you are invited to take part in a picturesque walk around the beautiful Cambridge colleges and their stunning gardens.

Bridge the Gap is a fantastic family day out or an opportunity for friends or work colleagues to get an insight of our impressive city.

This year’s route will lead you around Emmanuel, Christ’s, Jesus, St. John’s, King’s, Pembroke and Downing Colleges, exploring some of their most picturesque and intriguing places. Highlights will include Emmanuel’s world-famous Oriental Plane tree (to which a whole book is dedicated), the Darwin gardens at Christ’s and the Orchards at Jesus College to name but a few; the route will be packed with plenty to see and take in.

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 the new start and finish point is Parker's Piece

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 14th year forms a great team building exercise for many local companies



 

It is a great family day out and benefits Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Press Relief - the community fund run by Cambridge News.
The walk is wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and brings together people of all ages and abilities.
An early bird rate of £15 per adult is available until 10th July, £18 per adult thereafter and £20 on the day. Up to four children go free with each paying adult.
