On April 29th 2012 the Associated Country Women of the World launched its ‘Women Walk the World’ event in order to raise its profile worldwide. At precisely 10 a.m., groups of women from all the different time zones across the world began walking, some just a short way to their nearest village, others for more ambitious distances. This meant that, at any given time during the 24 hours, women somewhere were walking for ACWW.
This proved such fun, as well as, by chance, a successful fundraiser, that each year on or around 29th April (i.e. ACWW Day) it is repeated.
Lots of WIs in Suffolk East joined in the walk in 2017 and we are hoping for an even bigger turnout for 2018.
