Mile in Their Shoes
22 February – 6 April 2023

“At our drop in, one of the hardest parts is watching them walk out of the door and not knowing where they will sleep and if they will be ok!” Dave Cawley, project lead Sunderland Basis

Every day people experiencing homelessness walk miles. Walking to access support, to stay warm or simply keep safe. We are determined to be that place of safety, and support, they need. We’re determined to help them find home. We’re asking you to walk so they don’t have to – a mile a day, or more, during Lent to bring the hope they deserve.

Walk – or run, cycle, wheel or skip – covering 40 miles in 40 days, to raise money and awareness for all those walking daily on the streets in search of hope.

  Get involved

Be a hope bringing hero this Lent. Join us to walk at least a mile a day, raising as many donations, and as much awareness as you can. Sign up to receive your fundraising pack, challenge tracker and get your community involved. You can opt in to receive wonderful daily Lent Reflection that will help you slow down, consider and connect.

Fundraising target

We’d love you to raise £160 – £4 per mile.

There is no minimum sponsorship and we will support you at every step with information and tips to hit your fundraising target – whatever you set yourself.
