Walk for Freedom


We have baked for freedom – now it is the turn of the walkers!

Last year saw the first ever A21 Global Walk for Freedom, to raise awareness of the plight of those caught up in the misery of human trafficking.  Since then we have seen the problem increase as the unscrupulous take advantage of those distressed by poverty and conflict in their own countries. The walk is to be repeated this year on Saturday 17th October along with thousands of other people around the world who will be walking for freedom on that day.  Churches in Cheltenham and other interested groups are invited to join this walk.  The walk will start at The Minster at 11am with a time of prayer before walking around the town centre and back to The Minster.  The walk will be marshalled for everyone’s safety, leaflets will be handed out to explain the reason for the walk to passers-by. The walk is visually dramatic as we walk in single file, dressed in black and some had their mouths taped to draw attention to the inability of the oppressed to have their voice heard.  If you would like to know more, please go to www.A21.org.
