Every year L'Arche Communities from across the world celebrate L'Arche Family Day; a chance to recognise our belonging with the 154 Communities in the International Federation and reflect on our shared identity and mission. 

Last year L'Arche Communities in the UK did a walk of 3 miles to mark the occasion and to raise money for L'Arche International as part of our 'Walking Together' appeal. Due to Covid the event this year has had to be postponed.

Not to be deterred L'Arche Manchester have decided to do our own challenge and raise money for L'Arche International and our own Community. From Monday October 5th until Sunday October 11th we will be collaboratively walking, running, swimming and cycling 500 miles. Our aim is to raise £2000 to help Communities with far fewer resources than those we have in the UK and for our own community with all the associated and unpredicted costs relating to Covid.

In the words of the Proclaimers; "I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more" so let's see if we can. We'd love it if you can support us by virtually cheering us on, sharing our challenge with friends, family and on social media and donating if you can.
