Jo’s Trust Walk For Fun 2014!

We help out Jo’s Trust with their annual Walk For Fun in Manchester!
Over the weekend more than 100 people took part in an annual Walk For Fun in Manchester. This walk is organised by Jo’s Trust, a charity that raises awareness for the importance of cervical screening.

Every year Jo’s Trust runs a Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) that aims to highlight the importance of cervical screening. This is an important UK-wide initiative considering that 22% of women do not attend their screening tests.

Last week saw a huge awareness drive on behalf of Jo’s Trust, including the Put Yourself In The Picture app which encourages and supports those going to a screening. Saturday the 14th’s Walk For Fun in Manchester was the culmination of the week’s fundraising and saw over 160 people attend the 5k walk.

The Jo’s Trust website has plenty of ways for people to get involved with raising both funds and awareness, including skydiving challenges, mountain treks and sponsored cycling. Be sure to visit their site for the latest news and updates.

APL Packaging provided printed cotton goodie bags for their Walk For Fun in 2013, and they went down so well we supplied them again this year!

Event organiser Lou Hassall was ecstatic with how they turned out:
‘We had a great day, the weather was perfect on Saturday. The sun shone brightly and we were a sea of pink smiles around Dunham Massey Park!

‘We filled the bags with water, crisps, cereal bars, raisins, party poppers, tissues and a thank you slip to thank everyone who donated, sponsored, volunteered and came to the walk.‘

‘Everyone is always surprised and thrilled to receive the bags as they are such good quality, reusable and look fantastic. It definitely adds to the pleasure of finishing the walk and the whole experience, along with the certificate and medal.‘

Congratulations to everyone who completed the walk on Saturday, we look forward to hearing how much you raised!
