On the 29th April – 1st May, a number of volunteers will be walking approx. 20 miles per day for one, two or three days along the Pilgrims Way across the North Downs – between Winchester and Dorking.
This year the Sponsored Walk will help fund the construction of 3 new classrooms at Destiny Junior School in Uganda and support the WAIT team’s trip to The Philippines in July to teach awareness of the dangers of HIV/AIDS and online sex trafficking!
We invite you to join us in whatever way you can. Whether it's for one day or all three days, you are very much welcome! If walking isn't for you you can always support us by sponsoring someone who is walking or donating directly through JustGiving.
A sponsorship form is available for those who wish to collect sponsors. Download the sponsorship form here!
