141 miles has been selected to honour the 141 women who were killed at the hands of men in the UK in 2021.
Our challenge will be completed by The Magdalene Group staff, with some completing 141 miles individually and others hitting their target as a group. We will be completing group walks after work on Mondays throughout May, culminating in a final walk along the North Norfolk coast on 1st June to mark the end of our challenge. For our final mile we will carry a flag bearing the names of the 141 women, in memory of the women who have lost their lives.
The proceeds will support the work of both our adult and young people's services.
- Our Doorway Women’s Service works with some of the most vulnerable and marginalised women in Norwich.
- The Rose Project supports children and young people throughout Norfolk who have experienced or are at risk of sexual exploitation.
- The Jigsaw Programme delivers training and education to young people and professionals to prevent sexual violence and exploitation across our county.
We hope that the county will get involved with supporting us in different ways, whether by donating to our http://www.stewardship.org.uk/partners/20141216, joining us on walks, cheering us on in-person or online, or helping to raise awareness of both our organisation and the cause.
