We have partnered with Vespucci Adventures to inspire you to get outside and get hiking, whilst supporting mental health.
Head out on a hike in support of our Hiking for your Head campaign and you'll help open up the conversation around mental health and give your own wellbeing a boost!
There's growing evidence that exercise is good for your mental health and can help with low mood and depression. We also know that the Five Ways to Wellbeing can protect and improve our mental health. ‘Be active’, ‘take notice’ and ‘connect’ are three of the five ways and these hikes will help you practise all three, whilst helping us continue our vital work.
Vespucci aim to make the outdoors more inclusive and accessible by creating self-guided hiking packs that do all the planning and research for you.
Vespucci’s Signature Hike packs are made up of a map + guidebook that contain all the info you need for a great day out in one handy pack: travel tips, points of interest and recommendations for a bite to eat!
How it works:
Step one - Set a date and invite your friends or family!
Step two -
- minimum donation of £20 per person
- Select the number of people hiking
This completes your registration with us.
Each £20 donation pays for 100 Wellbeing Action Plans for a school - a simple resource to help young people keep themselves well and get them through difficult times.
Step three - Once registration is complete you'll receive a unique code*. Visit Vespucci Adventures and browse their extensive range of Vespucci Adventures’ Signature Hikes. Locations include: The Jurassic Coast, Cotswolds, South Downs, North Downs, Dedham Vale, Hampshire, Seven Sisters and more. Check out, where you can apply your code to claim your self-guided hiking pack.
*We kindly ask that this information is kept private.
Step four - Your Signature Hike will be sent straight to your door!
Step five - Set off on your adventure and rediscover the great outdoors. Enjoy connecting with friends and family, take notice and be aware of the present moment.
So, whether you’re a seasoned stroller or a nature novice, for as little as £20 p/person you'll help us to continue our crucial work, helping young people look after their mental wellbeing.
