Public relations experts help walking charity achieve coverage south of the border in a PR success story
SCOTLAND’S walking charity reel in success from across the UK after the month of July saw Paths for All receive extensive coverage throughout a variety of mediums.
Holyrood PR contributed to the walking charities success by helping them share several stories with the media across print and digital platforms. One such success in relation to DJ and presenter Edith Bowman who referenced Paths for All’s #MindToWalk campaign in a recent interview which received coverage in the Birmingham Mail and the Belfast Telegraph.
An extract of her interview read:
“I recently voiced a walking meditation podcast called Mind To Walk (pathsforall.org.uk). The idea is that you listen to a meditation while you’re walking, so you can really engage with what’s going on around you.”
Edith Bowman took part in the campaign by lending her voice to the meditation podcast. This follows on from the commitment made by 27 of Scotland’s most influential public and third sector organisations to embrace the societal attitudes towards walking post lockdown. Championed by Paths for All, the ‘Walk Back Better’ initiative has seen organisations come together to compile a plan to help encourage more people to walk as well as improve accessibility in towns and cities by widening pavements and reducing speed limits.

Furthermore, the walking charities first ever lockdown Step Count Challenge has proved to be a massive hit. Over 4000 furloughed and home workers took part in the challenge with over 90% of participants saying the test helped them cope better with the Covid-19 pandemic. Read the story here.
The month’s highlights include:
- Edith Bowman’s follow-up acknowledgment to the Paths for All #MindToWalk campaign in an interview which was featured in the Birmingham Mail and the Belfast Telegraph
- Coverage across a variety of different mediums such as print, social and broadcast media
- Paths for All had a total reach of 87,082 in July
