On the evening of 26 June, hundreds of Londoners will follow in the footsteps of famous film characters as they walk the streets of the capital to raise money for children’s charity, Brainwave. The Charity is hosting a 6km, sponsored Walk For Brainwave, which is a must for film buffs as well as an opportunity to raise vital funds.
The circular route, which starts and ends at the Minster Exchange at 5.30pm, features locations from a variety of iconic films including Skyfall, Sherlock Holmes, Lara Croft – Tomb Raider, Love Actually, Harry Potter, Bridget Jones, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and many more. There’s also a chance to test your knowledge along the way, as with a fresh twist this year’s event is also a treasure hunt with brilliant prizes. After the walk, everyone’s welcome back at the Minster Exchange to unwind with a complementary drink and a cash bar at the after party featuring film music.
All funds generated will go to the charity Brainwave, which enables UK children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence. For example, helping a child to walk or ride a bike, to recognise colours or to write their name. The children have a range of conditions including autism, cerebral palsy, Down’s Syndrome and rare genetic disorders.
Brainwave Chief Executive Phil Edge said: “2014 is the fourth year of the annual Walk For Brainwave, which always proves popular with both local businesses and the public. It’s great fun for friends and a wonderful team building opportunity for colleagues. We hope Londoners will continue to support us with their encouragement and donations.”
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and anyone can take part, either as an individual or as part of team. Registration is £25 per person. To enter today, visit: www.brainwave.org.uk/walkforbrainwave
