Charity Water Walk No. 4: Tervuren Lakes
OPEN TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
Date: Friday 10 June- PLEASE NOTE THE DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO FRIDAY JUNE 10.
For our fourth charity walk this year, we will be walking around the Tervuren Lakes and along the De Voer river. Carol H will lead the walk.
Starting at the Tervuren tram terminus the walk will take us past the lovely lakes, through the wood and then alongside the De Voer river and back. It is around 7/8 km and should take about 2 hours. This walk is dedicated to Club member Carol Beynon, who died on 19 May, and we will be raising a glass to Carol in the Bistro Tembo in the African museum after the walk.
Meeting Point: We will meet at the tram terminal, close to the entrance to the Africa Museum, at 10.20 for 10.30 departure.
Coming from the Ring, take the avenue de Tervuren towards Tervuren, continue over the roundabout with the jazz animals fountain towards the impressive building in front of you; you can park anywhere there, (I believe it is free with unlimited duration, but please check) or take the first left (effectively crossing the “dual carriageway that is Paleizenlaan) to go up an unnamed cobbled road and follow it around to the right and park anywhere there. Then walk to the tram 44 terminus on the other side of the N4 (1-300 metres, depending on where you park).
Registration Requested: Please register below.

Why Water Walks?
We have scheduled 10 walks featuring water, to include rivers, canals, lakes and reservoirs. Each walk is between 7km to a max of 10km. And as we are so lucky to have so many beautiful areas in and around Brussels, it seemed an appropriate theme for this year.
Do join in and help make a difference to the lives of people and whether walking or not, please donate to the Water Walks here.
We have two very worthy charities to support in 2022:
- The Community Kitchen provides nourishing food to sustain those who are hungry, homeless, or vulnerable in Brussels. The Community Kitchen works in partnership with other voluntary organisations (Serve the City, Salvation Army) that distribute and serve the food where needed.
- The Mbedza Project in Malawi. As of 2020, 8.1% of the adult population live with HIV, contributing to 978,363 orphaned children. Funds raised through BWC’s efforts would directly support The Songani HIV testing and counselling Centre in Malawi.
