Our Virtual Walk is back!!! With being in another lockdown we thought it would be a good time to finish our walk properly and cover the last bit of the round the world trip, which is mainly across the USA. The weekly zoom call is back and is mostly taking place on Mondays, if you’re interested in being involved then please get in touch. In time we will update the map below to show the new destinations and any videos or information we discover and learn along the way.
Annie and Jenni were planning to do a sponsored walk in London this year, however due to corona virus and the lockdown the plans for this have changed and we are now looking for as many people as possible to get involved in raising money to help us get back up and running when we are able to go back to work. We have some exciting events planned and can’t wait to share them with you.
From our base in Bootle Strand to Trafalgar Square in London via a visit to see some of the animals at Noah’s ark zoo farm where Annies parents live, near Bristol. The full trip will be 325 miles!! We are hoping to do the ( virtual) trip in just a week, and raise £1000. 20% of this we will donate to Bootle Foodbank which we are connected with and are helping so many people at this difficult time.
If we get enough interest we may decide to go further… to visit friends and family via Facebook live!…. you make the suggestions and let’s get walking!
Well we got enough interest to go even further and more people have joined us, the map of our walk now looks like this!!
That’s right we’ve gone all the way from Bootle to Bagdad! Next we are heading to Armenia and Georgia, stay tuned for more updates!
Let us know if you would like to be involved in the zoom calls where we explore each country, with their culture and traditions, and sometimes get to meet people who are living there!
You can see some of the videos from previous countries over on our Facebook page, click here to see how when visiting Saudi Arabia Annie got involved with the tradition of camel racing which, believe it or not, is a huge million dollar industry in their country.
Thank you to all those who have kindly donated to this project. It will help In Another Place when we are able to reopen. We have currently raised over £850 of our £1000 goal which is fantastic!
If you want to get involved in walking then contact Annie on firstname.lastname@example.org
