WOMEN WALK THE WORLD
2016: WI members again took part in a sponsored walk to raise money for the ACWW, (Associated Country Women of the World)
On the 18th August, 2015 7 intrepid members of the WI took part in the annual Women Walk the World event. We didn’t think we could manage to walk the world but we did manage to walk along the Strawberry Line from Axbridge to Winscombe and back – with a brief stop in Winscombe to enjoy tea and cakes!
This was a sponsored walk to raise money for the ACWW, (Associated Country Women of the World). With Consultative Status at the United Nations (UN), ACWW gives women a voice at International level through its links with UN agencies. ACWW also funds small-scale local development projects, which are requested by local women to suit their needs.
