Sponsorship - We aim to raise much needed funds for Lewes Priory Trust (which looks after the Priory ruins). Sponsorship forms will be sent out on registration.

It will be a fun, fascinating and illuminating day out. Please encourage anyone you know to sign up and to sponsor you.

We are looking at the possibility of hiring a mini-bus to take walkers from Lewes to Pyecombe. Please indicate if you are interested in this option.
