The London Walk
The London Walk is a night walk through London. Starting and finishing at St Martin’s in-the-Fields Church with a variety of distances available for people.; 10k, half marathon and a marathon.
Places cost £25 each and the fundraising targets are £150 for the 10k, £250 for the half marathon and £350 for the marathon length. All funds raised will go to your favourite homeless charity or walk for us the London Homeless Collective and support the city as a whole.
Walking through the night offers an opportunity for reflection on the experience of people who are homeless. Not just people who are forced to sleep on the streets but those who walk through the night, travel on night buses or access 24 hour retail sites in order to stay awake and stay safe. In particular young people, trans people and women, who are all especially vulnerable to violence and exploitation.
What is the London Homeless Collective?
The London Homeless Collective is a movement of more than 25 charities that help people experiencing homelessness in London. Each of the member charities reflect the needs and diversity of the city.
Some are committed to campaigning and housing rights, while others focus on outreach in local communities, or supporting people with specific needs. As a collective, we work from the pavement through to policy to find solutions that work.
The London Homeless Collective share ideas, experience, and opportunities, and work together to ensure that nobody is left behind. We fundraise together for the greater good because together we are stronger.
