The London Walk took place on Sunday 20 May and saw over 400 people taking part, walking from either Putney, Woolwich or Greenwich to Hay's Galleria at London Bridge. The weather held and it was a great day, with lots of people walking in memory of loved ones.
We have raised over £30,000 to date and money is still flowing in! If you’ve still got sponsorship money to pay in, you can take it along to any branch of Natwest, RBS or Ulster bank with the paying in slip provided in your pack. If you need more, please call us on 0300 1000 200. Alternatively, you can send us a cheque to the address below or give us a call to pay over the phone by debit or credit card. Don’t forget to tell us which walk you took part in too.
