Give her a rambling gift this Mother's Day
This Mother's Day chuck the chocolates and give a gift that makes a difference.
This Mother’s Day chuck the chocolates and give a gift that makes a difference.
Instead of splashing the cash on a calorie-packed box of sweet treats or buying an over-priced bouquet of spring flowers, why not think with your feet and buy your mum a gift membership to the Ramblers?
Not only will your present last for an entire year (and not just moments as in the case of chocs and flowers), you will be supporting Britain’s Walking Charity as well as giving your mum the opportunity to get out in the fresh air with like-minded people.
A membership to the Ramblers costs just �31 for 12 months – that’s less than �3 a month – and for that you will gain access to 38,000 organised walks every year, receive a whopping 20% discount of your first purchase at Cotswold Outdoors and you’ll receive a copy of Walk Magazine four times a year.
Becoming a member of the Ramblers is about people of all ages enjoying the Great British countryside. Walks are held throughout the year and cater for all abilities. So if you’re looking for a gentle stroll during the week, or if you’re after a day’s expedition with a pub lunch, then the Ramblers will be able to find a suitable walk for you.
Some walks are themed – there are photography rambles, walks which encourage dogs and their owners to meet up and enjoy the countryside together, or adventures which make the most of the seasons. And you don’t have to be marathon fit to take part or have the latest kit. All you need is a desire to walk.
If you would like to treat your mum to a Rambler’s gift membership, all you have to do is visit http://www.ramblers.org.uk/ and follow the links to the joining pages where you can select a gift membership option.
