Walking with a purpose


Stepping out to support our Safe Hands appeal


Build It has partnered with the team at Vespucci Adventures to inspire you to step out on a feel good hike, re-connect with friends, family or colleagues, and at the same time raise funds for our Safe Hands appeal.

A Walk with a Purpose is a simple format providing all you need in one handy pack. Whether you are an experienced walker, or a novice we give you the map and local area guide to have a great day out:

    • Choose from a selection of walks from Vespucci Adventures’ Signature Hikes – from the Jurassic Coast, Hadrian’s Wall, East Sussex, South Downs, North Downs, Surrey, Hampshire and Beachy Head.
    • For more information and to get your adventure pack with route map and guidebook, please get in touch with lisa@builditinternational.org
    • Set a date and invite your friends. It’s a minimum donation of £25.00 per person. Each donation will provide five school children with hand washing facilities and keep them in school and free from infection.
    • Then all you need to do is enjoy your day!

Alternatively why not choose your favourite walk, and make a donation? It means as you step out, we can step up our support to keep children safe from COVID-19 during the pandemic, and beyond. Thank you.

PS. Don’t forget to share your photos of the day – you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn! #BuildingBrighterFutures

Walking with a Purpose

“There is almost nothing better than to be walking with good friends in the great outdoors. However nothing beats walking, while at the same time raising money for Build It’s Safe Hands campaign – the perfect incentive to get us up the all too steep Shoulder of Mutton Hill.

To be rewarded at the top with stunning views over the countryside below was the icing on the cake. Hard to beat!”

“I love walking with friends in beautiful places. However, walking with a purpose is even better.

Knowing that my friends and I were raising money for Build It’s Safe Hands campaign, whilst at the same time enjoying each other’s company and the beautiful view from the Temple of the Winds is as good as it gets. Especially during Covid!”
