CAFOD Salford’s “Walk Against Hunger” campaign is now under way.
The charity’s goal is for each person to walk 200km by the end of lent. 5km per day, over 40 days.
CAFOD’s website states:
“Walk against Hunger is a challenge that takes place over Lent. It’s a chance for you to transform your life while changing someone else’s.”
“The sponsorship you raise will go to help the world’s most vulnerable women, men and children. It could help to bring healthy food to those that are hungry, clean, fresh water to those that are thirsty, or shelter to those who don’t have a home.
“We are walking to stamp out hunger. You’ll be helping children in need.”
“Some of our walkers have teamed up for Walk against Hunger so that they can track their distance and fundraising milestones together. You don’t have to join a team, but it can add to the fun!”
“Help stamp out hunger, one step at a time.”
“However you take part, let’s give hunger its marching orders!”
Participants can use the Strava app or an alternative to track their distances for each day that they walk.
There is even a chance to win a free thank you gift:
“When you raise £200 through your page, we’d love to send you a free gift as a special thank you.
If you’d prefer not to receive this thank you, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org”

No amount of money raised is too small, even small donations can make a world of difference for those in need.
£12 can buy the basic ingredients for a new mum to make sesame seed paste for her malnourished baby.
£20 can pay for expert food and healthcare classes for new mums and dads in rural communities.
£200 can feed ten malnourished children sesame paste for a week, helping them grow big and strong.
£1000 can provide hardy seeds to a whole farming community throughout a planting season”.
