Wander4Wellbeing

September 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Bodycarewecare are delighted to announce on Sunday the 12th of  September 2021 Wander4Wellbeing will take place.  This is a beautiful but challenging 12-mile walk in stunning East Lothian countryside raising funds for East Lothian Foodbank.

People can take part in a number of ways. You can walk the full 12 miles – from Amisfield Walled Garden to Traprain along the river Tyne, passing by Sandy’s Mill, Hailes Castle, Hailes Mill and then ascend Traprain Law and back again.  This is a scenic yet challenging walk with Traprain Law boasting some of the best views of all of East Lothian, Edinburgh, the Lammermuirs and Fife.

Would you like to join us? You can join the Bodycarewecare team in person for all of the walk, in part, virtually or why not wander in the four-acre Walled Garden from 1-5 pm.

We are endeavouring to raise as much money as possible for the East Lothian Foodbank.  We understand that this is a true lifeline for others in times of need.  Food is vital for not only our physical but our mental wellbeing.  A simple act of walking can help us help others, whilst improving our own mental, physical and social well-being.

The event will open at 8 am and we are thrilled that Amisfield Walled Garden will be open to the public from 1-5 pm. There will be tea and coffee available in the garden as well as plants available on the day. This is a zero-waste event. So please bring your own cup for refreshments.

This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate everything great about our community.  We walk, donate, create zero waste, care for our environment and give to those in their time of need. Humans need sustenance to survive and with over 18,000 kgs of food being distributed last year, this could be your opportunity to give a little.

The event is free to all over 18 years old (with a suggested donation of £20+ per entrant but the Foodbank will appreciate any kindness).

We have limited spaces for participation in the walk so quick sign up on the Eventbrite page is recommended, however, it would be lovely to see lots of supporters back in the garden. As it is a zero-waste event there are no medals or tee shirts, you can, however, buy a Wander4Wellbeing hoodie following the completion of the event for £40 which must be ordered and paid for in advance if you wish.  To enter the full event go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/wander4wellbeing-tickets-164617313817

All participants will undertake their own training prior to this event and on the day participate at their own risk and liability.

Thank you in advance for your interest, donations and ultimately attendance in any form.  We look forward to meeting you on the 12th of September 2021.
