We are excited to announce that registration is now open for The Big London Night Walk, taking place on Friday 2nd March 2018! This will be the eighth Big London Night Walk from The Big Issue Foundation and will feature a brand new start and route for 2018. It will be a night like no other as supporters come together to take to the streets of London and raise vital funds for our work with Big Issue vendors.
This year’s walk offers an entirely new start and finish point at Shoreditch Town Hall. There will be 3 rest stops during the 13 mile journey, where hot beverages and snacks will be available to help fuel walkers throughout the night! The walk will also include several inspiring talks from those whose lives have been positively impacted by the work of The Big Issue Foundation, including James Bowen & Street Cat Bob and Big Issue vendor Bill. This year’s lineup will feature more inspirational speakers to motivate you before you set off on your challenge.
We welcome groups and solo walkers to the event, with a registration fee of just £25 for individual participants, or £20 per person for groups of 5 or more. If you like the sound of what we are doing, but don’t have anyone to do it with, we have many solo walkers on the night and it is a great way to meet new people and even make some new friends. But don’t just take our word from it, here’s what Night Walker Louise had to say about her solo walking experience:
“Gradually we fell into step with the other solo walkers…and our team grew as we went. Don’t be put off doing this walk if you’re a solo walker- you will soon make friends; there is something about this event that brings people together in the most unique way!”
Due to the overwhelming amounts of support this event has received in former years, we expect the 350 places available to be filled quickly and the event to sell out. You can read more about the event and register here to secure your place.
All funds raised from the Big London Night Walk will help Big Issue vendors on their own steps towards a better life. So join us for this unique event and see the capital like you’ve never seen it before whilst helping to reduce the poverty and exclusion that faces Big Issue vendors across the country.
