We will walk 500 miles

16 July 2020

A team of 25 tenants from our sheltered housing developments will be collectively walking 500 miles to raise money for their social activity fund. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the tenants have not been able to hold their usual summer fayres or coffee mornings to raise funds, so they are trying something a little different this July.

Any donations received will help provide meaningful activities for our sheltered tenants including exercise classes, lunch clubs, outings and more. You may have already heard about our inventive warden call bingo!

The virtual trek around the North Coast 500 (NC500) route begins on Monday 20 July at 9.00am. Wearing pedometers, some of the team will walk outdoors whilst others will be counting their steps indoors along the corridors.

We will map their journey and share progress and pictures as we travel along the majestic coastline of the stunning highlands of Scotland. Did you know 500 miles equates to one million and fifty six thousand steps? What an amazing achievement this will be for our tenants!

We would be very grateful if you could support our walkers with this challenge by making a donation. They have a target of £1 for every mile walked, can you help them reach £500?


Good luck to our walkers.

Thank you in advance!
