Walking Home Welfies


Clare has been getting some serious use out of her walking boots as she’s been travelling all around the country meeting fans and signing copies of her brand new book Walking Home: My Family and other Rambles.

In Walking Home Clare shares her stories of the paths she has walked and people she has met after reaching for her walking boots and heading out on an adventure.

To celebrate the publication of Walking Home, Clare has teamed up with Penguin Books to launch a spectacular Twitter competition.

Plus you’ll also get a signed hard back copy of Walking Home AND a pair of Joules Welly Print Wellington Boots.

All you have to do for your chance to win this incredible prize bundle is Tweet Clare a welfie – a picture of yourself wearing your wellies or walking boots –using #WalkingHomeWelfie.

Nine runners up will also win a pair of wellies and a signed copy of the book.
