As part of our International Women’s Day celebrations, we are calling on all TS&W colleagues to enjoy a leisurely walk, jog or run and to ‘donate your distance’, with all proceeds going to The Girls’ Network charity.

We are aiming to collectively ‘travel’ 1000 miles, raising money for a very worthy cause in the process. The window for submissions opens today and will stay open until Monday 15 March. To ‘donate your distance’, simply give the equivalent of your activity, for example, if you walk 4.8 miles, we would love you to donate £4.80.

The Girls’ Network’s mission is to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional female role models. A £10 donation can help build a girl’s confidence at a virtual workshop and £100 could help support a mentor/mentee pair for six months.

Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to seeing the progress over the weeks to come.
