Sponsored walks in England

Join Christian Aid for a charity walk in England and help us fight poverty step by step.

Our sponsored walks have raised more than £153,000 in a year for our work. Hundreds of people walked thousands of miles between them to fight poverty. Thank you to everyone who took part and contributed to raising this fantastic total which will make a significant impact to communities living in poverty. 

If you are organising your own walk we have a range of free template designs you can use to promote and plan your event.
