FUNDRAISING INFO

We are a team of people striving to walk 3540 km across all the counties of England visiting 47 beautiful English gardens on a Virtual Mission to support vulnerable people during and following the UK's lock down situation as we tackle the recent Corona Virus.

Our Wellbeing Trailblazers Super Team has a number of participants with varying physical disabilities, and we are encouraging all our members to keep fit and active to help with their wellbeing during lock down. What better way to help maintain our wellbeing than by walking through the most beautiful gardens in England? Help our members to stay positive and keep well and active by joining them on a virtual walk discovering beautiful English gardens while raising vital funds to help maintain Guideposts vital services in local communities.

The current lock down situation is placing pressure on the vulnerable people we support, causing them to feel more isolated, bored, anxious, worried, and scared.

Our essential services are needed now more than ever, which is why Guideposts responded rapidly by establishing a completely new way of working, delivering vital support to vulnerable people and their carers during the Covid19 crisis.

We continue to support the health and wellbeing of over 800 people daily through online resources, welfare telephone calls, messaging, social media groups and targeted activity packs: from puzzles to gardening, from exercises to art and creative tasks, there are many ways that we have been reaching out and helping people live as well as possible, preventing breakdown and personal crisis, alleviating pressures on overburdened NHS and social care services.

We have set up a freephone helpline called, Stay Connected for any vulnerable person who needs help and support, signposting, and guidance.

Join the Guideposts Super Team and blaze the 4,004 km trail with our members, and together we can keep vital services alive during and after lock down. All we ask is each person joining the Super Team works to raise £50 in sponsorship.

£50 helps us to:
Reach 25 people with weekly activity packs
Cover the cost of daily health and wellbeing checks to 10 service members
Cover the cost of 10 help-desk calls to the freephone support helpline
5 people attending a Garden Wellbeing session in the future sunny outdoor days
Pay for a one hour disability and fitness specialist session in future happy times
Reach 25 people with healthy eating and recipe packs

Thanks for joining the Wellbeing Trailblazers and supporting the most vulnerable people in your community.

Me and my mum (Penny) felt left out with our miles adding at 2am therefore we’re adding them now (we’ll add our last bit before bed if it’s needed). We’ll add our video/photos of our finish line tomorrow, as we’re still planning it out! 😅🏁
