Just a short one to let you know that Nat will be supporting Home-Start's Walks this year. There will be two walks on May 2, 2012 that are organized by Home-Start children's charities in the Cotswolds.
The ten kilometer walk (approx. two hours long), will take place from the Cirencester Rugby Club at 09:30 on Wednesday, May 2, where Nat will be.
Meanwhile, another three kilometer walk will start an hour after that from the Cotswold Farm Park's wildlife nature walk.
Chairman of trustees Clare Baker states: "We chose to do two walks because we have an office in Cirencester and one in Stow and we wanted as many people as possible to get involved. Last year we supported 64 families with a total of 179 children. Volunteers are the life blood of Home-Start and we provide all our volunteers with a 10-week training programme. Funds from the walks will help us train more volunteers this year."
The charity offers parent-to-parent support on a weekly basis in the home for families with children under five. It offers help to families who may be finding parenthood difficult and many of them have to deal with additional issues such as bereavement, illness, disability, domestic violence or a relationship breakdown.
Clare adds: "As a charity we are always looking for funding to help cover our volunteer training costs. Local businesses have been generous in their support for which we are very grateful. We hope lots of people will join in the fun and help us raise much-needed funding."
