Throughout August we’re challenging you to walk 1 mile per day for 7 days – you can choose which days suit you best – use your phones, activity trackers to keep a record of your walking or walk for 20 mins per day which is roughly 1 mile!

Step 2 – Shout About It – We’ll be using the hashtag #milesforMYST across our social media platforms, please feel free to share your photos with us! 

Step 3 – Track your progress – Use a step counter, fitness watch, your phone to keep track of your miles – if you don’t have those to hand; a mile is roughly a 20 min walk.

What is MYST and why do they need my support?

MYST or Mersey Youth Support Trust is a local charity based in Kirkdale. We support people who face barriers to main stream employment and as a result decide to explore the concept of self employment and start their own business! We’re not your average business Centre; in fact our Kirkdale Hub is home to various businesses – carpenters, accountants, musicians to name a few!

Our support enables these people to become part of a community, create a brighter future for themselves and become financially independent.  Funds will be used towards our courses, workshops and activities that take place within the Hub.
