Walking for Health

 

 

 

“An excellent way of meeting other people, who have been though similar situations to oneself. Plus there are wonderful benefits in being outdoors, enjoying the views and taking exercise.”

Woking Mind Client

“Walking for Health is friendly and welcoming. It allows me to be myself, mix with friendly, likeminded people doing something I enjoy, and seeing little parts of my local area that I probably wouldn’t go to on my own. I love being in the countryside and I don’t feel lonely when I am in this group. I am able to be my true self and for a while forget about things that worry me  Walking for Health is helping me a lot and I am very happy to have plucked up the courage to take part.”
