Since 2016, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised a fantastic £700,000 for walkers. Their amazing support is helping us to create happier, healthier communities by inspiring more people to take up walking and by helping to protect the places we all love to walk.
Walking has the power to transform people’s lives – reducing social isolation; connecting people to communities, landscapes and nature; and improving physical and mental health. At the Ramblers, we do this through our successful group walks, health walks and walking festivals – all thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
According to research by Public Health England, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 5 men are classed as physically inactive, doing less than 30 minutes of moderate activity per week. This level of inactivity significantly increases the risk of developing a major health condition. With players support, we will help more people take their first steps to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
Thanks to players even more people can experience the benefits of walking and explore the joys of the great outdoors year round. Players supported the Ramblers Cymru Big Welsh Walk 2017 where we challenged walkers to conquer the legendary landscape of Ceredigion. Players are also helping to get more people out walking during our Festival of Winter Walks, and our summer walking festival in 2018.
Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “We are delighted that players of People’s Postcode Lottery are able to support the Ramblers with their Festival of Winter Walks, which we know will help thousands of people discover the joys of walking.”
