The Big Lent Walk

Jo Lewry, Community Participation Coordinator for CAFOD Portsmouth invites you to sign up for CAFOD’s BIG Lent walk 2024…

Do you like walking?  So why not challenge yourself and take on The Big Lent Walk! Walk 5k a day when and where you choose over the 40 days of Lent, alone or with friends. Raise money to help people as they overcome poverty.

CAFOD and SCIAF (Caritas Scotland) are teaming up to bring the Big Lent Walk to Great Britain! Read more about us and our decision to join forces. Thousands of walkers from England, Wales, Scotland and beyond, will be tying up their purple laces and walking an incredible 200km this Lent to fight global poverty.

“The Big Walk is something to look forward to”, says Angela Powell from CAFOD. “It’s a great way for children and adults to step outdoors to appreciate our God-given environment and to act out our faith as part of something that brings about change for the better”.

This year Ged in Liverpool will be taking on the Big Lent Walk with his dog Louie. ‘We are taking on the CAFOD Big Lent Walkies! Walking 200km before Easter.’ Ged continues, ‘I’ve seen the astonishing difference our support helps people bring about. CAFOD knows its partners well overseas and local people trust them. Right now, is such a crucial time to enable people to adapt to what the changing climate is doing to their communities in the forgotten places of the world.’

So, sign up to do the Big Lent Walk yourself, or join in with your school or parish. Then put your best foot forward with the biggest group of Big Lent Walkers yet.

So do join us as we walk to raise funds to fight global poverty.
