How to Help
Walk for Odyssey
Fundraising Pack
Coordination & Legal


Join an organised event or plan your own The easiest way to take part in a sponsored walk in aid of Odyssey either in the UK or further afield is to sign up with Across the Divide, who have organised very successful treks for us in the past. They run what they call ‘Just Events’, which allow individuals to raise sponsorship for the charity of their choice. On the other hand, you may prefer to plan and organise your own walk, in which case the notes which follow are aimed to guide you through the whole process.

A great social event. A sponsored walk is a great way to spend time together; you have plenty of time to circulate and talk to different people and you might plan a get-together at the end of the day as well. It could be a good way to renew acquaintance with people you were on an Odyssey course with, or an annual event for a particular group of friends. We want to make it easy for you to organise a sponsored walk and raise money for Odyssey.

How far would you like to walk? Different walks suit different people; it could be at any point along a scale: An afternoon stroll of three or four miles with children in tow. A twenty mile route in a beautiful area of countryside. A walk through or over mountains accompanied by an experienced Odyssey leader. A demanding overseas trek requiring many months of preparation.

How many walkers? A sponsored walk could be a solo effort, a small group of friends or a quite large organised event for dozens, even hundreds of people.

Accompanied walks. Do you hanker after something wilder? Do you have friends who would like to try something more challenging but doubt they have the skills or experience to do it safely? Odyssey can offer walks through or over mountains in different parts of Britain where you can be accompanied by skilled and qualified staff. Just choose your journey, get a committment from a certain number of people to raise a minimum amount per head to cover the cost, and we can agree a date!
