The inaugural British Heart Foundation (BHF) Naked Heart Walk takes place in the beautiful 18th Century landscape gardens of Painshill Park, Surrey, this Saturday, 3 July and will see naked walkers raising vital funds for research into heart and circulatory diseases.

Walkers can choose between a 2km flat and wheelchair accessible route or a 5km walk that takes them through winding paths up and around the lake and woodland. Many of the Follies including the ruined Abbey, Gothic Temple and Turkish Tent can be seen from the waymarked routes.

Walkers have made an entry donation of £20, and pledged to raise £100. There are medals for those who complete the walk and the evening closes with a BBQ. Overall we expect to raise a five figure sum for heart research.

The event is the brainchild of the East Sussex Coastal BHF Fundraising Group, run by Naturist and British Naturism member Philip Baker. British Naturism have named BHF as their Charity of the Year and will be working with them through 2021 to raise cash and promote awareness of cardiovascular health. The health and well-being benefits of a nude lifestyle are well-known to Naturists and as the BHF also emphasises healthy living and lifelong well-being, so our relationship is a natural fit. It’s also the BHF’s 60th anniversary this year. We’re delighted to support them as they reach this landmark and to help ensure that they thrive for the next 60 years.
