We're going to be walking 13 miles of Hadrian's Wall in celebration of Carers Week 2021 and to raise vital funds for unpaid carers in Gateshead.

Why We're Walking

60% of Gateshead's population will be an unpaid carer at some point in their lives. An unpaid caring role can be very difficult for a person to deal with, that is why we are here to make sure they feel supported in their caring role. Over 50% of unpaid carers in Gateshead spend over 100 hours per week caring for someone. We need funds to be able to continue supporting these incredible people through their time as an unpaid carer.

Who are the Walkers?

Each walker has been set a goal of raising £100 and they will need your help to do so!

Find out who they are and why they're walking the wall by selecting "fundraisers".

If you would like to join us on June 13th to walk the wall, we still have a few spaces left!
