Surrey Fundraising Walk 2023
Happy Child International’s Surrey Fundraising Walk on Saturday 17th June 2023.
Raise funds for a good cause.
Come and join us and experience the stunning views of the rolling hills in Surrey’s North Downs. The countryside is packed with diverse and fascinating flora and fauna as well as ancient woodland, arable habitats and chalk grasslands.
The beginning of the walk takes us to the First World War’s centenary project site at Langley Vale. Here, 180 000, trees have been planted by the Woodland Trust to commemorate key events from the First World War such as the inspection of Lord Kitchener’s troops on Epsom Downs in 1915 and the renowned Battle of Jutland in 1916, one of the most important naval battles of the First World War.
Walking is easy for most people, really good for you and a fun thing to do. Walking boosts your mood, exercises your heart, and provides all the benefits of fresh air and a healthy dose of vitamin D. What’s not to love?
This year the funds raised will go towards the Mentoring and Skills Training Project run by one of our church based partners Instituto Solidare. It provides vulnerable, young people (16-18 year olds) from fragile communities, in Recife, north east Brazil with the vital skills they need to enter the job market. The project is making a life-changing difference by enabling young people to have a better future and lift their families out of poverty.
