The Walk 1,000 Miles 2021 Challenge is the very first fundraising challenge for Gone Walkabout and primarily for its founder Tim Hills. With UK lockdown's end in sight (but still a long way to go) this challenge will be able to run still under the current rules set out by the government and will gradually be able to grow once restrictions are lifted.

The challenge is for Tim to walk 1,000 miles starting on 28th February 2021 to be completed by the proposed end of lockdown, June 21st 2021, and once this challenge is finished we'll be able to set new challenges with more people involved (if lockdown rules allow). This will all be tracked and updates will be pushed out on social media and YouTube. The first target was set at £500.00. Thanks to everyone's donations so far we hit that in April. New target of £1,000, let's do this!!

The money donated will be split equally between CALM and Help Musicians.

You may request to donate to a specific charity on behalf of this fundraiser. Please Contact us to request this.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. And 75% of all UK suicides are male.

Anyone can hit crisis point. CALM runs a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems. They support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).
