March for Veterans - Walk Peak District

Join us in Bakewell for March for Veterans on a ten mile route that is nothing short of stunning

Date: 28 March 2020
Type: March for Veterans, Walking
Location: Bakewell
Sponsorship target: £75

Why wouldn’t you want to visit a place known for its high quality tarts? (Of the cherry and almond variety, cheeky).

The Peak District is absolutely jam-packed with impressive scenery, so the opportunities for inspirational Instagram posts are endless. #blessed. Ashford in the Water, Great Shacklow Wood and Deepdale Nature Reserve all sound slightly ominous but this ten mile route is nothing short of stunning, but don’t just take our word for it.

Registration options

Kicks off at: 10am

We think you’re awesome for taking part in March for Veterans, you are helping us rebuild lives after sight loss. In exchange we promise:

  • A fantastic, fully guided walk with support from our awesome staff
  • A snazzy branded t-shirt so you can rock the Team Blind Veterans look on the day
  • A veritable shower of training and fundraising advice ahead of the walk
  • A direct line to your amazing local fundraising team
  • Access to our exclusive Team Blind Veterans UK Facebook group…memes always welcome.
  • Help and support wherever you need it – we’re with you every step of the way!
We know…£75 is a doddle, if you fancy a challenge you can double it – don’t let us stop you. £150 would pay for TWO blind veterans to come to one of our centres for Christmas dinner, and just like that…you’ve done your bit to end isolation!


Do you have friends and family that want to support you? Would you like to be part of this great event but don’t fancy the walk? If so, get in touch! We need volunteers to cheer on our walkers as they make it round the course and to bring a smile to their face.
We will provide everything you need to look the part including a Blind Veterans UK T-shirt, cheer-sticks and clappers.
