International Needs’ London Bridges Walk event is approximately a seven mile walk along the River Thames and across some of London’s most famous bridges. We will meet at 10am on Saturday 17 September at London Bridge Station (exact meeting point to be confirmed). The tourist inside you will enjoy seeing some of London’s iconic landmarks along the way, such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.
Who can take part?
Anyone can take part. This event is not just for the super-fit, all you need is some determination and a sense of adventure. Whether you are an individual seeking a fun challenge, organising a company event, a group of friends, or a family looking for a fun day out with a twist, this is for you. A great opportunity to walk with others who share your sense of adventure. There is an accessibility group led by staff member Megan Downs, this route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
What is this event for?
Most of us take for granted that wherever we may live in the UK, there will be safe drinking water piped into our homes and a sewer system kept separate to take waste water away. We don’t expect to get sick from drinking the water, or to have to walk many miles every day to fetch enough water for the family to use. But for around 300 million people in sub Saharan Africa, this is the daily challenge. Walk with us to raise awareness and provide funds to build wells and improve sanitation facilities, in Uganda for example, we want to stop 8,000 under 5 year olds dying from waterborne disease each year.
How much is it?
The cost of taking part is just £15. This includes an International Needs t-shirt, route map, a certificate congratulating you on your achievement. Children can join for £5 without a T-shirt, or £15 with.
We don’t ask for a minimum fundraising amount we just ask you to raise as much money as you can. Remember that every penny counts and will make a difference. The entry fee is not a donation to the work of International Needs, but covers the cost of the event, meaning that the sponsorship money that you raise can go directly to help those who need it.
