This is the card I will hand out while I’m on my walk……

 Walk from Hull to Liverpool  September 2017

I’m walking from Hull to Liverpool (200miles) to raise £20,000 for Growing Points. That’s £100 per mile!

We support people from excluded communities to achieve their ambitions and increase social mobility by sharing our professional networks and know-how. In out Hidden Talents programme we work with NHS Trusts to offer apprenticeships to refugees who want to become nurses. Our ambition is reach 2000 refugees over the next 3 years and train over 400 nurses.
