Gravesend pirate walk raises funds for the British Heart Foundation
A PIRATE walk in Gravesend was enjoyed by bandits of all ages as they helped raise pieces of eight for the British Heart Foundation.
A 35-strong group of buccaneers young and old gathered at the bandstand in Gravesend Riverside on Saturday (SEPT 21) at 11am for the two-hour walk and treasure hunt around town.
There were prizes for the best dressed pirate and all swashbucklers were rewarded with a free pirate hat for their troubles.
Entry fees were £5 for children and £10 for adults which along with sponsorship money raised plenty of treasure for the cause. The funds are going towards sustaining research that will help to predict, prevent and cure heart disease.
BHF fundraiser for London and north west Kent Joanne Howe said: “Hearty pirates young and old took part and Shorne Primary School kindly lent their pirate-themed backdrop for the bandstand to make it more fun.
“Treasure is still being collected and counted by those that took part.”
