The Whitechapel Centre’s Waterfront walk is back for 2022 and is open for bookings.
The sponsored sunrise walk will take place from 6:30am on Saturday 19th of February and participants will stroll along the famous Merseyside Waterfront.
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 the Pullman Hotel in 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 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.
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.
Hettie Miles, Fundraiser said:
“We are so looking forward to this year’s Waterfront Walk. We hope families, friends, community groups and sports teams will come together once more to raise funds for The Whitechapel Centre. Of course dogs are welcome too!”
