Community Big Lent Walk

Organise a walk on Saturday 9 March (or another date that works for you), and join with hundreds of people walking in community in England and Wales to support people who are working to overcome poverty.

How to join in

Take the following steps(!) to join The Big Lent Walk as a community or parish:

  1. Set up your community's fundraising page by signing up through the Big Lent Walk website.

  2. Click on “Parishes sign up.”

  3. Sign in to JustGiving or set up a JustGiving Account.

  4. Choose a name for your page and select your parish or community from the searchable drop down, and use this to sign up (you can search using name, town or postcode).

  5. Complete the rest of the details.

  6. Edit your page as you sign up:

    • Add your fundraising target.

    • Select an image for your parish or community (eg photo of your Church or an image representing your community).

    • Add your story. Tell us why your parish or community group is walking this Lent.

    Select ‘update’

  7. Display the poster in your parish/community.

  8. Choose a route. Maybe there's a particularly beautiful local walk that would be suitable.
