Jo Page - Fundraising Walk

Our Board Director Jo Page is walking the West Highland Way and Great Glen Way back-to-back, fundraising on behalf of Befrienders Highland. That is a total of 168 miles combined!

Jo has already raised an amazing £1700 on her Just Giving page, but hopes to have even more donations by the time she completes her walk.  Her aim was to raise enough money to train and match a new volunteer, and to support a new friendship for a year – she has now surpassed that goal, but wants to raise as much money as possible!

Jo will be starting her walk at Milngavie on 30th August, and finishing on 8th September at Inverness Castle, after a marathon 30 mile walk on the final day. Maybe some of our walk leaders or walk group members would like to join her for the final stretch from the islands to the castle on the final day?

There is also a prize draw for people who sponsor Jo -
