Sharpe’s March will take place between the 23rd and 25th September 2011 and will cover a distance of fifty miles between Marlborough, in Berkshire, through Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, and on to Reading. A staggering number of Napoleonic re-enactors from across the country will march against poverty. Their mission – make a real impact on the plight of children all over the world, many in countries associated with the Sharpe tales.
Read what they have to say at Sharpe’s March and also about the spark that lit this particular fire at ‘The Sharpe’s Children Foundation’ This charity, founded by Daragh O’Malley and supported by the cast of Sharpe as well as many other famous names, has made huge strides since its inception and is now well on its way to building the flagship shelter in Kodtra, the first of many in seriously deprived areas of the world.
If you cannot be there, try to donate something, no matter how small. Every little helps.
