The Portland Challenge 2019

Map of portland

On the 19th October 8 or our trustees, staff and supporters walked the half marathon around Portland to raise funds for our work. 

Accompanied by 2 dogs the team walked the 6 hours journey in good spirits passing the two prisons on the Isle, the Verne and Portland YOI, where several of our service users are serving their sentence.

Chairman Jennie Paterson said:

Well, we made it. Yesterday, we (plus 6 others and 2 dogs)walked the 14 miles of the coastal path around the Isle of Portland, in perfect weather. It only took us 3 and a half hours longer than it took Eliud Kipchoge to run 26 miles.  Thank you for your kindness and generosity in supporting  The Footprints Project.

We have raised a staggering £12717 to date, including a pledge for £5000. If you would like to donate there is still time -we will leave the link open until the 30th October.
