Festival Walking Event

Good Move and Move More walking volunteers annual event.

Despite heavy showers in the morning, Christmas magic was in the air and the rain held off as walkers decked in Santa hats, flashing lights and tinsel strolled around Bellahouston Park.

On Thursday 17th December staff, volunteers and participants from Good Move and Move More's walking programmes gathered at the Palace of Art for their annual Festive Walking Event.

'It's days like this that make you realise the positive impact our volunteer walk leaders make - it is so heart-warming to see people from all walks of life gather together and get in the Christmas spirit! We are extremely grateful for the thousands of hours donated by our Volunteer Walk Leaders. Leading short, friendly free walks in parks all across the city, they not only help people get a little more active, but also provide an opportunity for folk to get out of the house and meet others' Lorraine Toner, Good Move Development Officer

After a short walk around the park everyone gathered inside for a warm cuppa and mince pies. It was the perfect chance to catch up with friends and meet new walkers. We finished with a wee game of pass the parcel singing along to Christmas Carols. 'Now I feel really Christmassy, it was so lovely to see everyone' Volunteer Walk Leader.
