Walk In Her Shoes

 

 WHISC’s fundraising campaign to give you the opportunity to raise funds for this vital charity whilst imagining walking in other women’s shoes.

Below are the average number of steps taken by different women, including many of the women who use WHISC.

We know that women are the pillars of their families and communities but often don’t have time for themselves. To appreciate the distances that other women have to walk, we are encouraging people to measure the steps that they take and maybe increase them a little to match the steps of one of the women in the picture above.

If you would like to walk in the shoes of other wonderful women, donate £5 below and collect your pedometer from WHISC at 120 Bold Street (please make sure to leave your name with your donation). Then get people to sponsor you to walk your steps.

This fundraising venture is suitable for anyone. Please use our Facebook page to let us know how you get on or use #WalkInHerShoes on Instagram & Twitter.

There are three ways you can raise funds:

  1. Pay for your pedometer
  2. Get sponsored to walk (when you have your pedometer)
  3. Sponsor someone taking part

All proceeds go to WHISC and the work we do. Please use the button below.

Payroll Giving Via Your Employer:

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who receives their pay through payroll to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so for every £1 that you give it will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or Workplace Giving) is a valuable, long-term, source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.

It’s cheaper because its tax free. For example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!).

For higher rate taxpayers it is the only way to pass on your 40% or 45% tax to charities – only 28% can be recouped via other ways of giving.
