UNITE AGAINST THE HOUSING EMERGENCY

This winter join a nationwide effort to fight homelessness – by doing your own walk for Shelter Scotland.

Whether you’re a country rambler, city ambler, epic trekker or steady stepper, it’s the perfect opportunity to call on a few friends or loved ones and raise money for those who are struggling with bad housing or homelessness.

Got questions? Simply email thebigwalk@shelter.org.uk today. You can also check out our Resources page, which has all the tools and tips you need to start fundraising.

To protect yourself and your fellow walkers, please keep up-to-date with the latest coronavirus guidelines at gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19. Thank you.
