Steve and Michelle, along with others connected to Family First, are walking The Orwell Challenge. 

Steve is a trustee for Family First and Michelle is Deputy Service Lead and a Family Coordinator. As parents of 3 young adults they know only too well the challenges of parenting and they wish to do all they can to support families in Ipswich. 

Family First is a Christian charity who support families in Ipswich. They provide Family Volunteers to listen, support and encourage parents and carers to reach their agreed goals. Their aim is for parents and carers to increase their confidence, social support networks and mental wellbeing. Their vision is to see families that are resilient, thriving, and happy.

All money raised through this challenge will go directly to support the vital work that Family First does with parents and carers in Ipswich and the surrounding area.  

Event details

The Orwell Challenge

We will be walking from  Ipswich to Felixstowe on Sunday 23rd June 2019, this is a distance of around 13 miles. 

This is quite a challenge for us as our usual walks are taking our dog Samson round the block or occasionally over the rugby field! 

We have been in training for a few weeks now, gradually increasing our walking distances. As of Easter weekend the furthest we have walked has been 6 miles so we have a way to go to reach the target distance. 

Do take a look at the Family First website, follow us on facebook for lots of interesting and useful information for parents or take a look at the video clips of our amazing families to see the life changing work we do at Family First. 

We are very grateful for anything you can give towards our target. Thank you.
