Get Doncaster Walking festival is here again encouraging Doncaster residents to get more active out in their local community, appreciate Doncaster’s large open green spaces and have some fun.

It’s a great honour to announce that Doncaster’s Paratrooper, L/Cpl Ben Parkinson MBE will again be leading the first walk of the festival. The walk will be delivered in partnership with Club Doncaster Foundation and all proceeds raised on the day will be donated to Ben’s charity, Pilgrim Bandits. Ben will also be the official match day mascot for the Doncaster Rovers Vs Crewe FC fixture later in the day and all participants to the walk will be entitled to reduced price match day tickets for the game.
