Sixteen customers of the King George V in Brompton took part in the pub’s charity walk in the July sunshine and raised £515.50p for FACE.
The annual walk has raised more than £5,000 for various charities since it began six years ago.
The six mile course – from the pub and back to it again – covers some of the most spectacular views in Medway including Chatham’s Historic Dockyard, Upnor and Rochester castles, Rochester Cathedral, Fort Amherst, the Royal Navy War Memorial at the Great Lines and superb views of the River Medway. This year there was the added bonus of taking in the River Festival.
Early in the walk they went through the historic dockyard past the collection of warships and the group was photographed in front of two of the steam engines resident at the dockyard. The guy in the cap is another regular at the pub – Steamer Bill – who looks after the railway.
FACE organiser and pub landlord John Brice said: ‘It was a great walk for a great cause and in that heat the pints went down well afterwards.”
