"I will always remember the first (walk) like a walk full of hope and care and kindness.
It was the first time I was welcomed by the English people. I had nothing, no money, and they took care of everything”
“These are difficult times, but the joy my kids had when they opened the giftbox was enormous”
Here is what the media has said about the organisation:
“broaden and democratise access to the countryside by... creating positive experiences for people who may not have grown up feeling that rural areas were for them”
