Harborough Twenty 12 Lions Club is inviting people to fundraise for their own good cause in a Midsummer Dream Walk on Sunday June 21.

The event is going ahead at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, near Lutterworth.

The day will be extra special because the “fascinating and atmospheric” site is not normally open to the public.

The walk will take place along one of the UK’s longest ex-Cold War aircraft runways – giving you views of iconic warplanes dating back to the 1950s and 60s.

There’s a range of walks for the whole family as well as a special stroll of 400 metres on the main runway for those who cannot manage longer distances.

The whole site is level ground and you walk on tarmac so it’s suitable for all, including wheelchairs and pushchairs.

All participants need to do is pay an entry free and download a sponsorship form.

Any personal sponsorship goes to the charity chosen by the participant.

Profits from entry fees will be distributed to Lions Charities.

There are three starting times to choose from:

10am-noon: for those wishing to do a long walk of several laps.

2pm- 4pm: for those wanting to do no more than two long laps.

8pm-9pm: Midsummer Evening Dream: A wonderful evening wander as twilight falls.
