Join the sponsored Walk for WasteAid and help save the oceans from plastic waste.

We are raising money to train people to recycle plastics in the poorest parts of the world.

We’ll be walking between two iconic Manchester sites, starting from the home of Manchester City FC and following a fascinating route via the canals and waterways of this great city to Old Trafford, home of Manchester United.



As we follow the 25km route along the water’s edge, we’ll have plenty of time to think about how we take a clean and healthy city for granted, as we raise money for those living without something as simple as a bin collection.

Everyone is welcome, and there is no obligation to complete the full walk.
