The walking group is one of many weekly activities at the Booth Centre. It started before the pandemic and has been a way for people to come together for exercise and to discover different parks around Manchester. The ultimate aim is to help people gain self-esteem and improve their confidence and wellbeing by going on walks and simply having a chat.
Since re-launching the group in 2022, there has been an incredible uptake for our weekly walks, and the group have conquered almost every green space in Manchester, with some individuals being inspired to venture even further afield!
From Sackville Gardens to Sale Water Park, every walk is co-produced with the people who attend: from designing posters to promote the group to deciding on the next route.
Thank you to Cycle & Stride for Active Lives from TfGM for giving a grant to help make the Walking Group possible. And this isn't the end - we are looking forward to many more walking adventures!
