Weʼre raising £500 to to improve the health and wellbeing of older people in Cornwall
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
For many older people, loss of independence, mobility and confidence can feel like an inevitable part of the the ageing process. Confidence and feelings of hope can be reduced as a result.
Nordic Walking has been shown to make a huge difference to those who participate in it, building strength and stamina whilst having a low impact on joints and being suitable for many people despite the presence of health conditions.
Helping someone to feel empowered and independent does not just affect them, but also has a much wider impact on society by reducing the need to use services such as the GP, social and care services.
I am raising money to purchase equipment and transport to enable a Nordic Walking group to exist in North-East Cornwall.
Please help me to give the priceless gift of independence to all who participate.
