Bridge the Gap with l’Alliance Française

This popular family day out returns on Sunday 15 September!

We are busy planning another exciting route but you can reserve your place already!

Bridge the Gap Charity Walk is an annual event, now in its 18th year.
Our aim to make a difference to people in our community. We are inviting you and those you know to take part in a leisurely Sunday morning stroll through the beautiful surroundings of selected Cambridge University College grounds.
Bridge the Gap participants get to see a selection of Colleges all in one day, as well as least one extra special highlight along the route.
The walk is organised to solely help local Cambridge based charities and relies on the support of generosity of numerous companies, more than 100 volunteers and of course, the Colleges who so kindly support this event.
In the previous 17 years of this event, over 34,000 people have taken part, helping to raise over £506,000. Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Romsey Mill, two local charities, will once again be benefiting from Bridge the Gap. Every penny raised through walkers’ registration fees, sponsorship and donations, goes directly to these two charities.
The walk starts on Parker’s Piece, Cambridge from 9.30am and follows a scenic route through the beautiful grounds of the University’s Colleges. The Society of Cambridge Tourist Guides will be on hand to share interesting Cambridge facts with our walkers.
On your return to Parker’s Piece, you can enjoy more entertainment, sweet and savoury food stalls and other activities.
Bridge the Gap is now a firmly established unique charity event in the Cambridge calendar, attracting walkers from all over the county and beyond. The route, which changes annually, is wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
We hope to see you there and please share this super event with friends and family!
