Hi. I hope this is alright, James. It IS important and it IS in SE1 :-)
On Sunday 1 June, I am taking part in Crusaid's 'Walk for Life'.
It's a 10km sponsored walk through central London - starting and ending in Potter's Field - to raise money for people living in poverty and affected by HIV & AIDS in the UK and Africa. It's a great day out too, and a fantastic opportunity to take in the sights, keep fit and raise money for a good cause. Oh, and it's also Europe's largest fundraising walk for HIV & AIDS.
I have a solid background in both Theatre and Charity Management [the latter brought me to Rotherhithe in 1987] and I helped organise and took part in one of the very first 'Walkathons' in 1989. Then,and in subesequent years, we raised well over £3m and funded the One Small Step Gait Lab, at Guy's Hospital
, for children with Cerebral Palsy. [It's in the basement]I raised £300 in 1989, and did the walk as Dame Edna. This year, for Crusaid, I hope to raise at least £1K. I'm over halfway there!
But it's not enough!
