Celebrate National Walking Month

#
news main

Today marks the start of National Walking Month! With longer and lighter evenings, it's the perfect time to get outside, and get walking.


Hunt out your comfortable shoes and sign up today for a fun day in the capital that offers some beautiful sights whilst you walk the Bridges of London.

This is a great day out for the whole family, bring your friends along and meet new pals on the way as you walk the London pathways in aid of palliative care on Sunday 12th May.

Jenny Kilgallon who has walked the event since 2010 commented:

“Bridges of London is a fantastic fundraising event and great fun to do with family and friends. I've taken part from 2010-2015, and from year to year it has grown.

“I remember my first time taking part in Bridges of London, we had 2 coaches, and 5 years later we had 5 coaches. The community spirit is marvellous. A chance to make new friends and meet up with old ones.

“Many people who walk the event do it in memory of their loved ones and to say a huge thank you to the Hospice for the amazing care their loved ones received.

“I enjoy supporting a vitally important charity within my community and the buzz it gives you whilst taking part.”

Bridges include: Albert Bridge, Chelsea Bridge, Vauxhall Bridge, Lambeth Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Millennium Bridge, London Bridge and Tower Bridge, plus many more!

Walkers can either travel down by coach to London*, or they can meet at Battersea Park.

Adult - £20.00 (inc. Coach travel)
Children 12 years and under - £12.00 (inc. Coach travel)
