Over half way … 19 days to go on the Walk for Water Challenge!

Annie and Richard from Bournemouth

We are over half way through Lent with only 19 days left on the Walk for Water 10,000 steps for the 40 days of Lent challenge! Our wonderful Portsmouth walkers have completed over 4000 miles and raised £15,500. The Confirmation Candidates from Woolhampton parish and the Journey in Faith Group from Southampton have both walked over 1 million steps about 500 miles which is amazing! So from Portsmouth Cathedral we have virtually walked to Khartoum in Sudan! Please do keep donating to the just giving pages below and help us reach £20,000!

Judith from St Bedes in Basingstoke said ” I saw the Walk for Water Challenge and thought I should do that. I can get fit and lose some weight through Lent. No sooner had I signed up than my leg started hurting! It made me stop and think about those who have to walk to get water to survive. What happens if they injure themselves or get ill? How do they manage? My leg is having good days and bad days but I am pushing myself to know how some people must feel. For me, there is an end in sight. For them, no future beyond collecting water. What a waste of a life! YOU can do something about it. DONATE TODAY!”
