Walking out of Darkness 2017

Why we need your help



The Kaleidoscope Plus Group are the lead charity partner in Birmingham’s first ‘Walking out of Darkness’ 10 mile walk being held on Saturday 6th May 2017.


Supported by West Midlands Combined Authority, the Walking Out of Darkness event aims to unite individuals, businesses and the local community and encourages them to reduce the stigma of mental ill health by  ‘walking and talking ’ along the Birmingham canals – all whilst raising money for The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.


The event will be finished off with a family fun day at Canon Hill Park, where there will be a showcase of Mental Health and Wellbeing services.


We would be delighted if you would participate in the walk and raise money on our behalf through sponsorship.  


Registration costs £10 and can be done by clicking the link below:



Under 12’s are free of charge but must be accompanied by an adult.


Once registered, all you need to do is set up a Virgin Money Giving fundraising page by clicking on the "Start Fundraising" button on this page.


Why not encourage your friends, family and colleagues to ‘Walk and Talk’ and make the first event in Birmingham one to remember?!
