Volunteers' Week 2017


This Volunteers' Week, we want to say thank you to all of our volunteers!

We are incredibly proud of all our volunteers, who give up their time to support thousands of people to live healthier lives. Our volunteers not only help people get active, but they are also often friends, providing structure, conversation and companionship to people who need it. Our walkers often tell us that it's the social side of the walks that keeps them coming back, and volunteers are a huge part of this. 

Award winners!

This year, we're delighted to say that Walking for Health volunteers walked away with not one, but two honours at the Ramblers Volunteer Awards. Click the images below to read their inspiring stories, and walk and talk interviews, over on the Ramblers website.
