Free Walking Event - Bolton-Le-Sands - Blackdog Outdoors
Blackdog Outdoors x Carringtons Coffee Co.
About this event
We have been supporting Blackdog Outdoors since 2021, giving 30p from every bag of coffee sold so they can host free events like this to encourage people to reconnect with the great outdoors for better mental health and wellbeing.
Many of their events are introductory adult-only events aimed at:
- People new to the activity
- People that used to spend time in the outdoors but, for whatever reason, have lost the confidence to do so
- People that are looking to meet like-minded people so that they can plan their own adventures
Why should we do Outdoor Activities?
The role of sport and recreation in improving mental health is now becoming increasingly clear. The effects of outdoor activities can include stress reduction, improved mood, improved self-esteem and improved health and general well-being. The real challenge lies in promoting the idea of “green exercise” to those that will benefit from it, providing opportunities for those people to take up outdoor activities, and supporting and encouraging them as they set out on their individual adventures. We have established Blackdog Outdoors to provide this service.
