Shanti Stroll Fun

On Sunday the 15thof May we had our first ever sponsored walk, which proved to be a great little fundraiser and social gathering. We had 13 walkers in total that strolled along the river Thames from Island Gardens to Blackfriars. We walked around 7 miles, played a quiz and ended at the Anchor to enjoy a well deserved lunch!

A special mention goes to Alice who raised nearly £300 sponsorship for the walk. We are really impressed with her fundraising efforts and she was great company along the stroll so we hope to see her at our next events in the summer.

The walk has raised £400 for our charity projects and we are due to receive more sponsorship money this week, which we are really pleased and grateful for. We enjoyed lots of sightseeing of the docklands and famous landmarks like Tower Bridge and London’s oldest Riverside Inn.

The next strolls will be on the 12th of June, which will start at the London Eye and will travel south past Battersea Power Station and end in Putney. If you like the idea of learning about Jack the Ripper and Victorian Slum life then the ‘Ripper Ramble’ on the 26thof June will definitely appeal to you!

Walkers can raise money before the event or make a donation on the day for our charity. Please email Lynda@shanti.org.uk to book your place. 02078221869.

Shanti International envisions a world where each individual has basic human rights, the freedom, confidence and community support to address any social problems and bring about change. At the heart of any help we provide for the vulnerable, is the aim of helping individuals take advantage of all the possible opportunities that exist for them, so that the most disadvantaged people can live an independent life. We are not limited by causes and strive to be wherever a helping hand is needed. From addressing the legitimate concerns of people and families living with HIV/AIDS and providing care and support services; to protecting young girls and women from crimes like domestic violence, trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution, child labour and other forms of exploitation, Shanti International is there to take a stand.
