TAKING PART TO RAISE MONEY
This annual event is organised by the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen. It has been running for several years and has proved a great success, and great fun, for all taking part and for the Charities who have benefitted. The Fal River Walk is part of the Fal River Festival week.

In 2010 we raised just short of £20,000 and are looking to raise even more this year. Why not check out the details shown in the brochure, and join us for what promises to be our best year ever!
