Walking for mental health, exercise, and fresh air has never been so important for our health. This weekend starts a week-long journey of our walk for wellbeing for the Pied Piper Appeal. Entry to each event is just £5 per person to help fund equipment at the hospitals and SEND schools.

There is a choice of many beautiful walks around the county to choose from to do with friends and family and colleagues.

If you are planning your bank holiday weekend, then visit Highnam Court on Sunday 30 May and walk around the gardens and enjoy the beautiful grounds of Highnam Court.

On Friday 4 June we have an exciting night walk around the Brockworth area starting from the WCD Group located on Gloucester Business Park. It’s a circular walk with a 10km or 5km route. Arrive at 9pm and the walk starts at dusk around 9:20pm; back to the WCD Group starts for hot chocolate. The night walk is on flat pavements and suitable for wheelchairs.

On Sunday 6 June our Wellbeing Walk Week concludes with a circular walk from Belmont School in Warden Hill, Cheltenham up to Leckhampton Hill and back again for tea; so taking in some climbs along the way! What goes up must come down we always say. The walk will be between 2 and 4 hours starting at 12.30.

Thank you to Brunsdon Insurance for supporting our Walk Week with some fab T-shirts that you can buy online and again another way to donate to the Pied Piper Appeal raising funds.

Neville Mills, Brunsdon Insurance MD said: “As a father myself, the Pied Piper has always been a charity that sits close to my heart. To support the cause of sick and disabled children is an honour, which is why Brunsdon Insurance has been supporting the charity for a number of years.

The Walk 4 Wellbeing is such a simple and enjoyable way to contribute, with just a £5 donation to take part. We want to do our bit, as a local company to help the children have a better quality of life.

On behalf of the team, we are all extremely proud to be the main sponsor for this event and to support Pied Piper in their fantastic work for the health and wellbeing of the youngest members of our community.”
