Make a DonatION

Dursley Welcomes Walkers is a volunteer organisation whose mission is to promote walking activities in the local area and encourage visitors to the town.

Each year we hold a walking festival in October which is very popular with residents and walkers from further afield.  During the rest of the year we have projects that improve  access to the countryside for all.

We rely on grants, donations and sponsors to fund these activities.  We are grateful to the many individuals, organisations and Dursley Town Council that have contributed to this over the years.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so through our secure paypal link.
You don’t need a paypal account and we accept all major credit and debit cards

Thank you!  We appreciate your support in helping to improve access to walking activities in Dursley and the surrounding areas
