Sandra Samuels-Allen, founder of Walking Workout With A Difference C.I.C. (Community Interest Company), tells us the story behind the phenomenon.
“So how did it all start? Well, at the turn of 2017 while sitting on the edge of my bed, I found myself wondering how I could take myself out of isolation/loneliness and meet new people.
After moving to Kent from London, at the time I had no friends in the Medway area to hang out with, share life experiences with.
I did go out a lot on my own doing my own outdoor personal workout. But this was still isolation/loneliness and I will be honest and say that I did feel the pain of loneliness at times.
Things began to change for me on the 6th January 2017. I had started posting on social media to see if anyone who would be interested if I setup a local community group to walk and talk and still have a workout, to help the community with their wellbeing prevent isolation, Loneliness Obesity and Mental Health.
Each time I meet the members to do our walking workout it is so rewarding knowing I can offer my time to the community and have fun and laughter with them. They are so welcoming never a dull moment we always Laughing and supporting each other.”
