Winter Wellbeing Walk

As part of the National Moving and Grooving campaign we have been delighted to lead two National Wellbeing Walks. The first took place in the Spring and the second in the winter, raising over £3,000 for the NAPA Helpline, our free activity support service. This enabled us to set up the Support and Share Network a FREE monthly, reflective practice session for Activity Providers across the UK. The forum enables Activity Providers to support each other, share their experiences and learn new approaches. Book on the next one HERE.

You can hold your own wellbeing walk whenever suits you! Download The Wellbeing Walk Guide for inspiration.

Join us for the sponsored walk with a difference! And the difference is you! There are lots of ways you can make the walk fun and personal!

You can…. walk around the garden, along the promenade, up a hill, down a valley, dress up, take the dog, dance and skip, hula hoop….. whatever you fancy!

We hope the walk will encourage our members and supporters to bring people together, keep fit and raise funds to support NAPA’s work.

Walking is good for you, it’s fun, free, boosts mood, exercises the heart, and provides the benefit of fresh air.
