5. WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE:
The work breakdown structure identifies the tasks of the project and provides a framework for managing and organizing the work. It is made up of the following sub-sections.

Accommodation costs include the costs that will be incurred renting the hotels where the 20 members of the team and other volunteers will be spending their nights. The activity is scheduled to take six continuous days. Therefore, four hotels along the Weston-Westminister road will be used to house the participants during the night time. The hotels already identified include the Holiday Inn in Bristol, Red Box Guest House in Chippenham, The Lamb Inn in Marlborough and The Manor Hotel Datchet in Windsor. Since the total amount allocated to accommodation is £428, the maximum amount that can be used in each of the above mentioned hotels is around £1071.
FOOD AND OTHER COSTS:
Food and other costs are allocated a total of £2040. A greater percentage of this amount is going to be used for buying food to the participants particularly the breakfast, lunch and dinner for the six days. The other percentage of this amount will be used to cater for other costs such as paying food hygiene certificate, insurances, buying the banners, paying the licences for putting up banners and signs and labor costs for putting up banners and signs.
The total that is allocated for transportation is £720. This amount is expected to cater for transporting the participants from and returning to Westminister. Public road transport will be the main means of transportation. However, in some cases, other means of transport such as the train will be used provided they are within the allocated amount for transportation.
There are many risks that the participants are likely or may face during the implementation of the project. Since the walking exercise will be carried out mainly on the roads, many of the risks are likely to come from the road. The following are, therefore, the risks that participants are likely to face.
The participants might suffer from road risks such as being hit by motor vehicles and motor cycles while crossing or walking along the road.
Since the journey is too long approximately 152 miles, many participants might develop health complications such as fainting.
Participants may also suffer from other risks such as attacks from other people. Not all people will be happy with the activity and, as a result, there might be a conflict between the participants and residents.
