Becky Dawson – walking from Bedford to Calais in support of Bedfordshire's refugees

Updated: Nov 4, 2020

Becky, one of FOR's supporters, is going to walk 346,000 steps throughout November – the approximate number of steps between Calais and Bedford.

Becky says: "We are all going through challenging times. COVID has hit many people hard, and part of me hopes this helps people understand what it is like to have your life turned upside down, to not be able to take normal life for granted. This is the experience for many refugees fleeing war-torn and poverty-stricken countries.

"I am walking to raise money for this brilliant charity, which is doing wonderful things for the people who have had to face the sort of challenges most of us could never imagine."

We will be following Becky's progress on our Facebook page. Meanwhile, please support her valiant efforts in the cold and damp by donating at JustGiving
