Stradbally walkers on the march.

A Stradbally Group are gearing up for Women's Mini Marathon to raise money for charity this summer.

Stradbally native Kim McCormack set up a group called Little Steps of Hope which the Little Town and the small steps people can take to bring hope to those in need.

The group has gone from strength to strength  with over 20 women planning on walking the mini marathon in June and they have decided that all funds raised will go to Team Tom in Stradbally.

This is a local charity that provides a range of free services such as counselling and play therapy to individuals and families affected by suicide and mental health issues. 

The group kick-started their fundraising efforts over the Easter weekend by bag packing in Supervalu in Stradbally which £1,084 was raised. 

Sponsorship cards will be available in businesses throughout Stradbally for people to donate and the ladies themselves
will be out and about collecting sponsorship over the coming weeks and you are asked to please give generously.

The group are supported by Stradbally, Vicarstown and Timahoe Community Sports Hub. 

The Steps of Hope walking group meet at 7.30pm every Monday night at St Mary's Hall.
