Welcome to The Walking Partnership. This exciting initiative, supported by RWH Travel, aims to provide direct financial support to the grass roots of the walking community in the UK through local walking clubs and societies. If your group supports walking by organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers or some other contribution to walking in your area, you may be eligible to join The Walking Partnership.
Over the past 70 years, RWH Travel has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries we visit on our worldwide holidays. Now your group could benefit directly from this support!
Many local walking groups and clubs have joined The Walking Partnership, and we are welcoming new partners every day. If your walking group has not yet applied to receive funding from The Walking Partnership, supported by RWH Travel, please ask your group secretary, treasurer or chairman to fill out the application form below. Please ensure that you inform us each time you or a member of your group travels with us and we will nominate your group. Please note the nomination must be done before the holiday and cannot be paid retrospectively and the payments will not be made in conjunction with any other offer.
RWH Travel are proud to support hundreds of walking groups all over the UK. To find out if your local walking group is a member of TWP or to request more information on joining please email [email protected]
As a partner, your walking group will receive funding in the form of a financial contribution every time one of your members books a holiday with RWH Travel. In order to qualify, the person travelling must nominate your group before they travel. The group will receive a 6-monthly payment taking into account all holidays that have taken place in the previous 6 months on which the group was nominated. The contribution structure is set out in the table below.
|UK Holidays||£10 per person booked|
|Short haul or Cruise & Walk Holidays||£20 per person booked|
|Long haul Holidays||£30 per person booked|
Our Walking Partnership Groups will also receive other great benefits from time to time, including special holiday offers and access to exclusive events. Don’t just take our word for it:
"Hillingdon Ramblers joined the Walking Partnership Scheme in March 2012. Knowing how very popular RWH Travel were with our members, we were eager to join and benefit both our group and the countryside in which we walk.
Since joining the scheme we have received £1840. These funds have enabled us to buy equipment to help promote our group at local events and provide better facilities and accommodation for our Annual General Meeting.
In addition through the Chiltern Society, we have provided three Kissing Gates, one in the Coleshill, Chenies and Little Chalfont. The Chiltern Society obtains the approval from the landowner, local authority and undertakes the installation. Our gates carry a plaque “ Donated by Hillingdon Ramblers in association with RWH Travel” an advertising benefit to both organisations.
The Walking Partnership scheme has certainly enabled our group to purchase and participate in expenditure beyond the restraints of our annual budget. A great scheme and Hillingdon Ramblers are delighted and grateful to receive such generous donations from RWH Travel.”
