Please help CRASAC and Coventry Haven support vulnerable women in the city.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Walking has become a solo feature of my lockdown(s) and I have been documenting my routes with photos and steps!
Sadly during the Covid crisis some women cannot have that simple pandemic freedom whilst in abusive relationships so I wanted to help in a material way as well as the wider issues around women's safety. We all need to do better in the 21st century so hopefully raising some funds is a good start to support vulnerable women in Coventry.
A Coventry Way instantly sprang to mind as a route to follow. Taking in the Warwickshire countryside cannot be a bad way to spend a day in June - although 12 hours of it might be draining!
It is a 40 mile circular route around the city taking in villages such as Ryton, Bubbenhall, Ansty and Corley and towns like Kenilworth and Bedworth. There is usually a group challenge once a year but I want to tackle it on my own.
I will document each place with a photo and hope to have 40 photos available for sale - also for charity - once complete!
I will do it in 1 day around summer solstice to maximise light and to make the most of my title - a summer solstice saunter!
Your money will be split between CRASAC and Coventry Haven.
