DEDICATED Harriers’ fans will be once again lacing up their walking boots to help raise money for charity.

Kidderminster Harriers Independent Supporters Trust (KHIST) will be taking on their biggest challenge yet when they carry out their annual walk to an away game in March.

Members have chosen the Reds’ fixture at Alfreton Town in Derbyshire on March 17 – which will see them walk a gruelling 80 miles in total.

Funds raised on this year’s walk will be donated to the British Heart Foundation, for which Harriers’ season ticket holder Dave Hall is a dedicated campaigner.

Walkers will leave Aggborough on Thursday, March 15 and then tackle the full trek over the coming days, arriving at the stadium in time for the Saturday afternoon kick off.

Last year, KHIST successfully completed the 40-mile trip to Cheltenham as they raised money for Queen Elizabeth Hospital in memory of much-loved Kidderminster teacher Becky Giddens.

Back in 2013 – for the inaugural walk – supporters managed to negotiate the 65-mile trek for the game against Forest Green Rovers and helped raise much-needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support as a tribute to former KHIST chairman Steve Millington.

In 2014, the group walked 29 miles to Telford United, in just one day, for the local, baby loss charity ‘Towards Tomorrow Together’.

Supporters hope to break the £100,000 barrier in terms of money raised across all four walks that will have been held to date.

A KHIST spokesman said: “This walk will be in aid of the British Heart Foundation - undoubtedly a worthy cause, for which Dave Hall, known to many fans as a Harriers season ticket holder, is actively involved in Worcestershire.

“Dave has been a support driver at all three of our previous walks and a tireless campaigner for this excellent cause.

“Our ambition this time is to exceed the target of £100,000 of donations raised for charities over our four walks. That would be a fantastic achievement by Kidderminster Harriers supporters and something for which we could all be very proud.”
