Thank you for visiting the sponsorship page for the Walkfest Angel Walk on 1 October 2022. The walk is a 12 mile journey from Guildford to Witley, following the Wey Navigation and the Greensands Way, crossing some of the most scenic countryside in Surrey, passing through the Wintershall Estate and Hascombe. A team of Angels of all shapes and sizes, including the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux, are taking part in this event to raise awareness and much needed funds for the work of Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy’s (GTCC) Street Angel and Community Angel projects.
Operating since 2008, GTCC has some 100 volunteers who offer compassionate, non-judgemental care for vulnerable individuals who live, work, or visit Guildford Town Centre. Our Street Angels serve the people of Guildford as a calming, positive presence every Friday and Saturday night. They make a real impact on reducing crime and anti-social behaviour by providing a caring presence to reduce tensions in the night-time economy. We engage with the homeless and offer practical acts of kindness for those in need. Whether unwell, separated from friends or no phone and means to get home, we offer help. Our Community Angels befriend adults of all ages who face loneliness and isolation, most clients are referred to us by social prescribers and have complex needs. Our Angels offer a listening ear and the gift of time to help individuals reconnect with others, and those who can offer them more support.
All are welcome to participate in this great day out! To take part in the walk you must register in advance using the ‘sign up’ button at the top of this page. There is no charge to take part in this fundraising event but our Angelic team invite you to sponsor them generously to encourage them on their way. If you are part of the walking team, please share this page with your friends and family to invite them to sponsor you!
All donations will help cover the costs of employing a project co-ordinator to ensure our volunteer Angels are well trained, equipped, and supported as they offer their time freely to others in need.
