ABOUT US

Welsh Women Walking 

Our Goal Is To Promote Walking As A Means Of Wellbeing For Women.

We're very proud to have celebrated our 13th Anniversary at the beginning of 2022.

Welsh Women Walking, (WWW), is a friendship group who meet one Sunday a month to walk and talk for wellbeing while raising funds for local charities.

Our story

Welsh Women Walking was founded in May 2009 by Jacquie Williams who, together with 14 other inspirational ladies, teamed up to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and raise over £100,000 for charity. On return from summiting Africa's highest peak the women continued to meet to enjoy the benefits of walking and welcomed new ladies to join the group.

In October 2012, Jacquie Williams stepped down and handed over to Pauline Fuller who had joined after their Kilimanjaro expedition in 2010. Over the years the group has grown and evolved, and a committee was formed with long-standing members Linda Strange, Helen Jenkins and Linda Graves.

Welsh Women Walking is essentially about stepping out into the beautiful and varied landscapes of South Wales, the friendships we've made and continue to make, while supporting local charities and worthy causes along the way. We have pledged walks to over 40 Welsh-based charities over the years and, to December 2022, have raised over £265,000.

Our routes vary from coastal paths, hill climbs, forest trails, urban ways, canal towpaths, riverside tracks. In fact, a whole spectrum of walk varieties that we're so fortunate to find in abundance here in Wales. We now have a collection of almost 50 walks in and around South Wales and continue to discover new routes to share with our walkers.

Over the years, some of our intrepid ladies have accomplished notable expeditions, undertaking serious fund-raising treks/bike rides in various locations:

Mount Kilimanjaro 2010; Himalayan Trek 2011; Base Camp Everest 2012; Patagonia 2015; Great Wall of China 2017; New Zealand 2017; Peru 2017; Arctic 2018

.......all in aid of local charities. 

2020 heralded the start of our next decade.........

2019 ended with Pauline Fuller, stepping down from 'active' duty, after seven wonderful years at the helm. She has handed over the admin of the group to Joanne (Jo) Beaton and Sue Toner.  Together they liaise with the other members of the WWW Organising Team, Linda Graves, Helen Jenkins and Linda Strange, to continue to plan the variety of monthly walks in support of local charities for which the group is loved and renown for. 

Pauline developed WWW extensively during her seven years.  She remains an active member of the group, and continues to lead walks, as well as joining us on our recces from time to time, whilst enjoying a well deserved break from the administrative side. 

2020 certainly presented many challenges, for all of us, both personally and professionally.  Little did we know as we stepped into this year that we would only be able to stride out for 6 walks. It all started so innocently!

Due to Covid-19. we had to put in place restrictions on numbers, track and trace measures, carry out stringent risk assessments, plan our walks to avoid stiles, gates and other 'touch-points' as much as possible, and keep a close eye on the ever changing restrictions and advice from the Welsh Assembly. 

Several of our group walking in Vietnam, Nepal and China, in aid of Velindre and The Brick School, have had to reconcile themselves to these treks being deferred to 2021.

2021 again presented us with challenges.  We weren't able to walk at all for the first 4 months due to continuing restrictions due to COVID.  Happily from May onwards, we were able to walk every month.  What a relief!

Being able to get back out for 6 consecutive months raised our collective spirits, and whilst the numbers attending were modest, the enery and enthusiasm knew no bounds!

Alas, however, the expeditions/treks in China, Nepal and Vietnam were again cancelled, and deferred until 2023.  

2022 is well underway, with our first walk of the year attended by the largest group in a long while, 43 walkers, and we are busy planning out our schedule of walks and charities for the next 11 months. 

We currently have 400 members on our distribution list, and regularly have new members joining us for thir first WWW walk.

Stay tuned! We update our Events Page with each walk.

JOIN US

We're a very friendly, non-profit, volunteer group and welcome new ladies to join at any time. We have no membership forms or fees as we operate on the simple basis that participants make a donation to charity for the walk they attend (suggested amount £5 -£10).

Please note that we walk in ALL weather conditions, unless they are dangerous, e.g.  gale force winds or thunder and lightning. Ensure you have the appropriate gear to hand!

The charities we support vary from walk to walk and are usually causes local to the area of the route, and those close to our walkers' hearts.
 

 

INFORMATION

Monthly Walks

Held once a month these walks cover a wide range of terrain reflecting the wonderful, diverse nature of our beautiful Welsh countryside and coastline. These are generally around 2  1/2 - 3 hours / 5- 6 mile duration and at a pace to suit all.
 

Welsh Women Yomping

We occasionally organise longer and more strenuous hill walks for experiencing the more remote areas of our spectacular Welsh landscape. These too are at a pace to suit all, there is no competitiveness simply the mutual enjoyment of like-minded people appreciating the great outdoors.
