Boxing day to Hogmanayreduced

What is it?

The trustees of the Jo Walters Trust will head out for a fund-raising Yuletide yomp, every day between Boxing Day and Hogmanay. But it will be so much more worthwhile if we can persuade our friends around the world to do the same. So sign up, get outside, increase your festive footfall and rack up some mince-pie fuelled mileage! With prizes on offer and oodles of kudos available, we'd love you to do a walk, perhaps make a donation and help us reach our overall mileage target for the six days from Boxing Day to Hogmanay.

Following on from last year’s stellar efforts, we shall be striding out with The Proclaimers’ “but I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more” ringing over ben and glen (or hill and dale, for those south of the border).

And the small print: be sure to do this in a COVID safe way, adhering to whatever regulations are in place where you are.

Get involved

Once you've done your walk let us know how many miles you manage to cover - you can submit the total of all the miles walked by everyone in your group. You can submit as many walks as you like between the 26th and 31st December and give us the mileage for each. Donate (or get your friends to sponsor you!) for £1 per mile (or whatever you can afford).





Options to donate include:

The Trustees of the JWT (nine of us) are going to try and walk the distance from Jo’s home in Alford, Aberdeenshire to Bristol, where she went to university. That’s 476 miles. Are we going to make it?! Watch this space or better still, set off on a walk and help us!
