Stepping Out: Walks for Carers
If you’re an enthusiastic walker or a carer looking after
someone in your family, we are offering the opportunity to join us
every month in a relaxed, fun, sociable and scenic walk in gorgeous
Kent countryside or along the coastline. The idea is to help carers
get fit, make friends, exchange stories or just soak up a few
moments of peaceful contemplation in the midst of their
understandably hectic lives.
The walks are specially
designed to suit a wide variety of walking abilities and carers may
come with the people they care for or simply come along on their
own. We particularly need knowledgeable and sociable walkers, like
the Ramblers, who are invited to lend their support in many ways
including: insight, enthusiasm, chat and exhaustive knowledge of
tearoom cakes honed over years of Kentish exploration.
you are a regular - or irregular - walker who would like to come
along we would love to see you and you would definitely make a
difference to someone’s day.
There will be five more walks
held this year, each one on the last Friday of the month.
begin at 11am and we are happy to provide transport (including
wheelchair-friendly) for those carers unable to make their own way.
Carers just need to book by calling 01233-664393. The sooner
the better, as in some cases we need to cap the numbers.
Meanwhile, if the walkers would like to get in touch with
283566 or Brenda Courtney
firstname.lastname@example.org 07500178033, all further details
can be provided.
It is our pleasure to provide entry fees
where necessary and a subsidy towards lunch or refreshments.
With grateful thanks to Sport England for supporting this new
venture and to our much-appreciated ambassadors including Baroness
