The WI Walks the Trans Pennine Trail

By guest blogger Louise Checkley, member of N1WI

WI Walks is the walking group from N1WI, Middlesex federation. The group is run by Anna, Helena and myself. We have an active Twitter and Facebook account promoting WI walks around the country, inspiring women to get active.

2015 was the year of the WI Centenary. To celebrate, WI Walks walked the whole length of the Thames from source to Thames barrier, a total of 184 miles in 8 days. We raised £700 for our N1WI centenary bench appeal and local charities. We carried the WI centenary celebration baton and met a wealth of WI talent along the route.

This year Denman needs us!

After watching Jo Brand walk from Hull to Liverpool for Sport Relief last year we were inspired to take on 185 miles of the Trans Pennine Trail.

We will be walking from Liverpool to Hull, learning from Jo Brand that walking into head wind is no fun! We start walking Saturday 27th May 2017 finishing Sunday 4th June 2017, just before the National AGM on the 7th June in Liverpool.

We will be raising funds for the Saving Denman Appeal and meeting lots of WI members along the way. Donations are welcome via the JustGiving page.

If you would like to join us on our trek to save Denman see the itinerary below. 

You are more than welcome to join us for the total 185 miles, 1 day, a morning or afternoon or meet us for lunch, we are always grateful for cake…! If you can’t walk with us follow our story via our Twitter and Facebook pages.
