We want the whole of the UK to hear about God’s love for them and we need your help!
Lace up your shoes and join UCB on an epic walking adventure, covering the whole of the UK! But have no fear, you don't have to walk all 1200+ miles (or swim across the Irish Sea). Instead, you can do a few miles right where you are and the best part is that, every single mile counts.
Here’s some of the Big Weekend Walkers who took part in 2018:
“It's definitely helped us as women and mothers to have the radio as extra input, and walking with friends, life group, our children, in one of the most beautiful patches of God's creation to raise money for you spreading His Word even more is just so appropriate.” Alice
“18 walkers did the 4 miles......from a 2 year old and 3 year old twins (with a little help from a buggy!) to the oldest.... a very fit 75 year old! We are only a small fellowship but we raised £269”. Liz
During the weekend of 4th-6th October, we're asking you, your church (and anyone else who wants to get involved) to help raise support for UCB, by going for a walk!
It might be a sponsored stroll with a few friends, an organised walk with people after church on Sunday, or you might even take on a much more challenging hike of your own across the whole of the UK.
Whatever you do, every single mile walked, by every single person counts! Here at UCB, our own team will be walking to add to the big total. Between us, can we walk enough miles to cover the distance from John O’Groats to Lands’ End? And raise funds for UCB to share God’s Word the length and breadth of the UK, at the same time?
1. Talk to your friends, your church, people you know and see if they'll join you. You could walk for 1 mile (and take the kids/pets and spend some time enjoying the outdoors) or walk for 5 miles or even 20. It doesn't matter; how far you go is totally up to you!
2. Register your walk.
3. Set up your JustGiving page. It’s really easy and we’ll email you to help you do it. Ask your friends and community to sponsor you. All money given online goes directly to UCB, so you don’t even need to collect the cash afterwards.
4. Receive a free Big Weekend Walk Kit which includes some UCB goodies to help keep you motivated!
5. Lace up your shoes and go for a walk!
But don’t worry if you can’t take part in an event, we’d love you to still get involved by sponsoring our UCB team, who will be joining some of YOUR walks across the UK. A number of presenters will be taking part, so keep a look out on social media to see who is walking, live as it happens!
Whatever you give, every single pound, by every single person counts!
Thank you for your support! Because of you, we can change more lives for good, by the power of God’s Word.
