Sat 18 Aug: Triple Welly Challenge

Raise money for Maternity Worldwide (Charity Registration No. 1111504) and join us on Saturday 18 August for the epic Triple Welly Challenge, walking from the Wellington in Elm Grove, to the Duke of Wellington in Shoreham, and then back along the coast to the Duke of Wellington in Brighton for a fabulous after party to celebrate completing the 12 mile challenge – you can look forward to fun, food and fabulous entertainment including karaoke hosted by the legendary Betty Swollocks!

We want to help Maternity Worldwide raise £15,000 to support Pirimiti Hospital, Malawi to buy a new anaesthetic machine. The existing machine recently broke and can’t be repaired so currently, it isn’t possible to give safe general anaesthetics at Pirimiti (only spinals are possible). We want to support Sister Mary and her medical team to to buy a new machine (costing £15,000) so that life saving surgery, including caesarian sections, can take place again.

Maternity Worldwide is a charity which works in low-income countries to help women and girls access the high quality maternal health care they need to be able to give birth safely.

Children and Animals

Well-behaved children are more than welcome in the Welly, as long as they’re with a responsible adult. We’re also very dog-friendly, although it can get busy and crowded on match days.

In line with the law, obviously we can’t serve alcohol to anyone under 18 so please bring your passport or other photo ID if you’re lucky enough to look under 25.
