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, we’re asking everyone across the country to do their own 3k, 5k or 10k walk.

It’s completely free to sign up, and you can fundraise alone or with a team. You’re encouraged to raise at least £80 for us – and the money will go towards supporting all the people whose jobs and homes are under threat right now.

You can do the walk in all lockdown conditions. To stay safe on your walk, please keep up-to-date with the latest coronavirus guidelines at: gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19. If you’ve got any questions, please email: thebigwalk@shelter.org.uk today.
