Why has the website changed?
The Walk4Life website is 6 years old and although not the prettiest of sites we think it is still a really useful tool to use to plan a walk .
Funding for the website from the Department of Health ended 4 years ago. Since then Walk Unlimited have been self-financing the project; sadly, we can't afford to do this forever. In addition to hosting and maintaining the site we pay Ordnance Survey for every map view. With over 50,000 visits a month the running costs are high.
Do you know what it means?
Some dogs can be very anxious or worried, and their owners need to make sure they are safe. If they became very anxious or frightened, they may bark loudly or snap at people, and that can be dangerous for the dog, and for anybody who approaches them.
We know that lots of people regularly use the Walk4Life website, it’s a great resource and the number of walks grows daily. But did you know government funding stopped for the website 3 years ago.
The website was part of the government’s Change4Life project. Since funding stopped Walk Unlimited have been meeting the full cost of keeping the website alive. We can't do this forever.
We’re now asking for your help, but we’re not actually asking you to give us any money.
