Every last Sunday of the month a group of people meet up to enjoy a walk and make new connections in and around Carlisle. Walsingham Walks - I Can Do It! are easygoing walks of 2 to 4 miles for people of all abilities to amble and enjoy the good weather. Walks are designed to be wheelchair friendly and inclusive.
"I really enjoy my walks I have such a laugh." - Sharon, a person we support
People are making new friendships, meeting people in the community and getting some fresh air, when usually they would stay indoors, with many people meeting up for other activities and hobbies as new friends.
“The walking group gives people we support a chance to be seen out in the community and enjoying themselves while keeping fit and active at the same time” - Sarah, Walsingham Support Staff
Already through word of mouth, people are attending from different organisations, and Walsingham staff hope to increase attendance from all around the area and share in the good spirit.
So far they have been a great success, with staff and the people Walsingham Supports looking forward to attending.
“I like seeing my friend and being in the sunshine." Neil, a person we support
