The event is due to start in London’s Battersea Park on Sunday, 25 September starting at 8.30am before finishing on Tower Bridge, the walk – which covers an 11 mile scenic walk over the 12 famous London bridges – closes at 5.30pm and irrespective of where you live, you can support a great hospice charity in the process.

Ramblers Worldwide Holidays – whose headquarters are located at the picturesque Lemsford Mill – will be organising coach travel from Sir Frederic Osborn School in Welwyn Garden City and there will be time to stop for a leisurely lunch and take in the wonderful landmarks and sights making this the perfect event to take part in with family and friends. Parking will be available in the school grounds and at Welwyn Garden City Football Club.

For those who do not require coach travel we will be assembling and meeting at the Peace Pagoda at Battersea Park at 10am while the holiday company is asking if participants can raise £50 in sponsorship so it can help us provide specialist end of life care to patients with life-limiting illnesses.
