Weʼve raised £300 to ...support ‘Operation Noah’ and ‘Hope for the future’ as they work to encourage and enable people to engage in fighting climate degradation.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Walking to Glasgow’ is me walking home to the city from which my family originated. I am totally committed to working towards COP26 in various ways especially using 'Operation Noah' materials and expertise -and the support of 'Hope for the Future'. I currently live in the Peak District and recently began to log my walking around the local area. My particular route to Glasgow – a virtual goal of course – is 300 miles from my house to the 'The Armadillo’ (SEC). My plan is to walk the miles by mid-October when I shall hopefully be in Glasgow for the following 3-4 weeks, including COP26.
I want to be involved in as much as I can in those conference 12 days, perhaps with the Iona Community (to which I belong) and other climate groups who will also be present and active at that time.
I originally planned this as a personal project of symbolic commitment, but people since have kindly suggested that I use it to raise funds and so through this Just-giving page I'm going to share any proceeds 50-50 with 'Operation Noah' and 'Hope for the Future' – two organisations committed to action against climate degradation and both springing from Christian faith which I share.
