LONDON BRIDGES WALK A SUCCESS!

Over 300 walkers gathered outside the Tower of London for a seven and a half mile sponsored walk across nine of London’s iconic bridges on Sunday September 27 to raise money for CHASE hospice care for children.

Walkit.com was on-line partner to the event, which is in its fourth year.

Walkers, all wearing CHASE tee shirts, set off at 10am in bright sunshine from the Tower of London, waved off by CHASE organisers. Groups of walkers included families, some supported by the CHASE service; as well as CHASE supporters, friends and members of staff.

Everyone had a booklet which included a general knowledge quiz on sights they would see along the route.

Nine bridges later, after crossing Lambeth Bridge they reached the Imperial War Museum for a street party with refreshments and a raffle and later, a chance to chat to CHASE staff and take a look around the museum exhibitions.

CHASE hopes to raise £22,000 from the event this year. CHASE event organiser Michelle Nippress, said “Thank you to everyone who took part and helped to make the day such a success. The fact that the weather was really nice and warm made such a difference. Thanks also go to walk.it com for their on-line support and to Forresters Financial Services who sponsored the event.”

“The money raised at this event will make a real difference. We need to raise £4 million every year to continue supporting families with children not expected to live beyond the age of 19 and the majority of this money comes from donations and fundraising – which is why events like the London Bridges Walk are so important.”
