The Whitechapel Centre’s Waterfront walk is back for 2023, with the sponsored sunrise walk taking place from 6:30am on Saturday 18th February.
Participants will have the opportunity to stroll along the famous Merseyside Waterfront and fundraise in aid of The Whitechapel Centre.
The Waterfront Walk was first inspired by the homeless charity’s Outreach Team, who are out every morning come rain or shine from 6am, walking 5 miles or more around the city streets to find and help people who are sleeping rough.
The public can show their support by taking part in the walk starting at Nova Scotia in the Liverpool City Centre, ambling along the Otterspool Promenade and ending at the sitting bull statue in Aigburth. The event can be enjoyed by all ages so get the whole family, office, school or college and even your beloved dogs involved, to do their part to help end homelessness in Liverpool.
While strolling along the promenade participants get to enjoy the dawn of a new day and hopefully a beautiful sunrise. At the finish line the charity will be distributing a delicious breakfast butty to celebrate and congratulate everybody on the walk.
Russell who participated in last years walk said “We I had a great time on the Waterfont Walk, It was lovely to see how many groups of people where taking part supporting the charity.”
Whilst there is lots of fun to be had, The Whitechapel Centre wants to use the opportunity to deliver an important message about homelessness.
Toni-Marie, Fundraiser at The Whitechapel Centre said “We are looking forward to getting back to our enriching Waterfront Walk event, the premise of the event is to highlight the lengths our Outreach team go to daily to search for and help homeless people on the streets of Liverpool. We hope that the walk will show attendees the amount of work Outreach do daily”.
