Circle Home with the GM Ringway in September and help to end homelessness!

The ‘Circle Home’ event is the city-region’s biggest-ever sponsored walk from the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, and will include a weekend of walking to raise much-needed funds to help support people experiencing homelessness in Greater Manchester led by the GM Ringway team.

There will be five sponsored walks taking place over the weekend of 8th – 10th September – with the opening walk even offering the opportunity to do a lap of honour around the Salford Red Devils Rugby Stadium and watch the second half of the match!

The walks, with booking links, are listed below. Full details of each walk can be found on the eventbrite pages.
