Inspired by Raynor Winn’s account of homelessness in her book, The Salt Path, throughout April/May 2022, I walked the South West Coast path. The Salt Path is life-affirming true story, that ultimately looks at the concept of home, how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected of ways.
Starting on Good Friday 2022, I began walking the 600+ miles of the trail – my aim was to complete 22 miles a day. During my walk, I was joined by a variety of individuals who have faced homelessness across the country. I wanted to hear more about their experience, understand their story and the challenges they faced. People working across the industry also came along, getting involved in the walk to help raise awareness and increase our fundraising activity.
