Walking to support women and girls in developing countries

In May 2017 I’ll be helping to change lives by taking part in Walk In Her Shoes and walking 10,000 steps every day for a week. I will be walking in solidarity with women and girls from the poorest countries around the world, who spend their days walking for water. The daily trek to collect water for their families prevents them from going to work or school and fulfilling their true potential in life.

Having been so fortunate to benefit from a fantastic education, supportive family and a career that I am passionate about, it is easy for me to take these things for granted. That is what inspired me to take up this challenge. In the last few weeks I have been religiously wearing my Fitbit and to my horror I have realised that as my working days are spent mostly sitting in a company office chair talking to our lovely clients I am lucky if my daily step account reaches above 5000 steps most days. So I can quite confidently say that not only is this a fantastic cause but it will also be a real challenge for me to move more in and outside of the office.

Some of the Redwood team have also kindly offered their support by agreeing to come on walks with me during their lunch breaks, so I won’t be doing it completely alone!

We will of course be keeping everyone updated during that week in May as to how my steps are progressing and if you would like to donate please visit my just giving page:
