Bruce & Peter's 70km Walk

Friday 20th May 2022

Bruce Elkins and Peter Harding, who have supported Rose Road for a collective 20 years, have challenged themselves to walk the 70km (44 mile) Test Way walk over two days to raise £7,000 in celebration of Rose Road's 70th anniversary! They invite people to join them along the way and set up their own fundraising pages to help fundraise towards their goal.
