Virtual Boxing Day Walk 2020
We didn’t want to abandon our annual Boxing Day Walk this year, but with restrictions in place, we can’t do it our usual way. Therefore, we are running a virtual walk, meaning anyone can join us, from anywhere in the world – how exciting!
Our Boxing Day walk is a chance to remember Piers (our Founder & CEO’s brother), and all the others who also lost their lives in the Indian Ocean tsunami on Boxing Day 2004. It’s also a time to get out of the house and walk off your Christmas indulgences – as well as an opportunity to celebrate the year’s achievements of the charity.
Our normal walk is from our charity HQ in Chilthorne Domer nr Yeovil, to the beautiful National Trust property, Montacute House, and back (about 6 miles). It’s a chance to meet old friends and new, and maybe even have a sneaky tipple along the way! There’s no reason to change elements of this (we highly recommend the tipple!). As this is usually a small fundraiser for us, we’re also asking that a donation of £10 is made per family/friend group to SIAB (obviously if you’re able to donate more, that would be amazing!)
So, here’s the idea for this year:
1. Decide on a walk route (could be from your house, or a short drive away)
2. Depending on Tier structures where you live, you may be able to grab a couple more friends to join in!
3. Make your £10+ donation to School in a Bag here (please put in the notes that it’s for the Virtual Walk, so we can track it)
4. We always have a minute’s silence at 10.36am (the time the tsunami struck the island of Phi Phi where Luke and Piers were), so if you’d like to join in on that, it would be very special
