Josh’s Sponsored Walk

This is Josh.

Josh is a member of People in Action – he attends various groups, but we got to know him quite well during lockdown.

Josh attended almost all of our Connections in Action Zoom sessions and we chatted to him every day. Josh is turning 30 this month, and to celebrate he is doing a sponsored walk to raise funds to support People in Action on September 11th.

He is going to walk along the canal from his home in Wakefield into Leeds city centre – a distance of about 9 miles!

Josh’s mum Nicky says: “People In Action got Josh through lockdown, it was incredible what was set-up online in such a short space of time. I don’t know what he would have done without the online groups and support”.

Josh’s mum Nicky says that Josh is not someone who normally like to be out and about, so this walk will be a real challenge for him.

Josh will be walking with his brother Joel, his sister Jasmine and mum Nicky.

We’re so proud of Josh for doing this, so please, if you can, sponsor him, and all the money raised will go towards supporting people like Josh to be better engaged, connected and to live more independent and healthy lives.Thank you.
