Walking4Norfolk: Celebrating and supporting unpaid carers
Set up in 2018, Walking4Norfolk was inspired by the 100,000 unpaid carers in Norfolk who provide unpaid support to ill, older or disabled family members, friends or partners. These unsung heroes are thought to save local authority and NHS services an enormous sum, but they face a variety of challenges and can become isolated, with a lack of support. 
To celebrate these carers, former High Sherriff of Norfolk James Bagge decided to walk from his home in Stradsett to Santiago de Compostela (LINK TO SANTIAGO PAGE). The walk raised £70,000 which has been distributed by Norfolk Community Foundation to help change carers’ lives (LINK TO https://www.norfolkfoundation.com/news-events/making-a-difference-to-the-lives-of-carers-in-norfolk/ )
Walking4Norfolk has now evolved to become a wider movement raising awareness and funds to support these amazing people in their invaluable, and often unrecognised and challenging, roles. 
Get involved today and lend your support to these local carers!

Walking4Norfolk: Celebrating and supporting unpaid carers

Set up in 2018, Walking4Norfolk was inspired by the 100,000 unpaid carers in Norfolk who provide unpaid support to ill, older or disabled family members, friends or partners. These unsung heroes are thought to save local authority and NHS services in Norfolk £500 million a year, but they face many challenges and can become isolated without support. 

To celebrate these carers, former High Sherriff of Norfolk James Bagge decided to walk from his home in Stradsett to Santiago de Compostela. The walk raised £70,000 which has been distributed by Norfolk Community Foundation to help change carers’ lives.

Walking4Norfolk has now evolved to become a wider movement raising awareness and funds to support these amazing people in their invaluable, and often unrecognised and challenging, roles. 

The funds are collected, managed and distributed by the Norfolk Community Foundation to local voluntary organisations throughout the county who care for and support our carers.

A truly underestimated and easily ignored cause. But one that has touched many of us and will continue to do so to a greater and greater extent. I commend you for completing a Herculean task and for reminding us all what is important in this world.
