Walking

To celebrate the success of our lockdown resources for primary schools, our Comms and Marketing Coordinator, Francesca Marzullo, shares some of your top responses and pics from social media.

thanks for your support!

As the UK charity for everyday walking, we have promoted the importance of walking to school for over twenty years. For this reason, we could not just sit and watch while millions of pupils stayed home as schools remained closed for non-key workers' children during lockdown. The walk to school might have been called off for a few months, but #WalkingFromHome is always on! 

We have so far released 14 sets of weekly activities for primary school pupils and their families to take part in during lockdown, and it is safe to say you loved them. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive, with well over 2,000 downloads to date! Lots of schools, LAs and other organisations have shown their support by resharing our activities on social media! Our resources have also been endorsed by the Department for Transport!
