· By booking a ticket you aren't committing to join us for the whole day - only as much of it as you want, or can manage. You can plan your day using the event programme.
- We are grateful for your donation when you book your ticket, however big or small.
· We're asking walkers to help raise sponsorship towards our collective goal. You can download some graphics to help you share the fundraiser on social media, and there's no need to worry about how much or little you raise.
Life isn’t easy for anyone. But we all have a story of overcoming: whether it’s depression, grief, self-harm, shyness, perfectionism, cultural barriers, or any of the day-to-day struggles that each of us face. That’s what Touch Network is all about. When we hold up our hands and say that we’ve struggled too, and found our way to the other side, we bring hope and inspiration to others.
Walk With Us
On Sunday 22nd May 2022 we’re inviting the community to #WalkWithUs through the streets of Southampton to celebrate our stories and raise money for Touch Network. Along a seven-mile loop from Bitterne to the City Centre and across the Itchen Bridge we’ll take part in creative actions, hear amazing real-life stories from others and make new friends – including Daniel, a larger-than-life puppet with a message of resilience who will be joining us thanks to Luke Brown Dance.
The message of the day is that nobody who struggles is ever alone. And we’ll be raising money to make sure that everyone can continue to be included in Touch storytelling events, which happen regularly across the city. Generous donations from people in the community will mean we can afford to keep offering these events for free, sharing stories of hope with anyone who needs to hear them.
