Billy's Twilight Walk

Wednesday 10 October 2012 10:30

Fans and fundraisers are invited to join our Mascot, Billy the Badger, for a sponsored walk in aid of Shooting Star CHASE and Fulham FC Foundation

The event starts at Fulham FC’s Training Ground in Motspur Park and ends at the iconic Craven Cottage on the banks of the Thames, taking place on Saturday 13th October.

The scenic stroll is a total distance of seven miles, achievable by all, and begins at 3pm. Participants will be accompanied on the walk by Fulham FC’s very own Billy the Badger. We are expecting to complete the route by approximately 7.30pm, where on arrival at Craven Cottage all those taking part will be welcomed by Fulham FC and have the opportunity for refreshments at the stadium.

Participants are asked to contribute a joining fee of £10 for adults and £5 for children and raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship per entrant, with all proceeds being split equally between Shooting Star CHASE and Fulham Football Club Foundation.

Shooting Star CHASE, the local children’s hospice service, supports families with a child or teenager not expected to reach their 19th birthday. The charity currently helps over 600 families within 38 boroughs in West London, Surrey and West Sussex. By providing expert care at two children’s hospices - Christopher’s in Guildford and Shooting Star House in Hampton, Middlesex - families can receive the essential support they need.

This brand new event is the first of a new partnership between Fulham Football Club and Shooting Star CHASE, which was announced at the club’s recent fixture against West Bromwich Albion in September. 

The partnership aims to raise vital funds to support Shooting Star CHASE's hospice at home service, which provides expert care to families with a life-limited child or teenager in their own homes, as well as funds to support all areas of Fulham FC Foundation's work.
