On Saturday 13 May 2017, join us on a walk around the beautiful Sussex countryside to raise money for Peace Direct. Show solidarity and raise vital funds to support people all over the world who are striving to bring peace to their families and communities.

Walking routes range from 10km and 60km to suit all ages and abilities, with all walks starting at Goodwood Racecourse. Ambling across the South Downs, surrounded by stunning views, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet passionate people who are all raising money for charitable causes.

You pay an entry fee between £20 and £70, depending on the length of the walk to cover the event costs, so every penny you raise goes straight to Peace Direct to help fund our work to stop wars destroying lives.

There are plenty of easy ways to fundraise: host a bake sale at work, make some Easter treats, or appeal to your family and friends to support you. Perhaps you have a group of family or friends who would like to join you? There are entry fee discounts for groups!

Set up an online fundraising page

The need for peace is as urgent as ever, and by supporting Peace Direct you are helping to stop wars, one person at a time. Let this journey you make around the Sussex hills be the start of someone else’s journey to peace.
