One Trust are delighted to have been chosen as one of the charities supported by this years Nightingale Walk!
The walk, on Saturday 17th June 2017, will be the 38th consecutive year of the event, making it one of the longest running (albeit at walking pace!) community charity events in the country. Local people from in and around the Nightingale Lane area in Wandsworth have been pounding the path in aid of local good causes since October 1979, raising little short of a staggering £500,000 so far.
This year’s walk starts from Walton on Thames station at 9am. There are 2 other starting points where you can join the walk later in the morning;
- The longest walk from Walton on Thames is a 20 mile route.
- There is an intermediate starting point at Kingston which kicks off a 13 mile route.
- There is also a micro-route which starts at Richmond and is a mere 7.5 miles, particularly suited to anyone walking with dogs or small children.
Transport is provided at the end of the course (Putney) to return finishers to the Nightingale pub where a BBQ awaits.

In support of the walkers, One Trust will be manning a checkpoint/ refreshment station in Richmond along the Thames path at the bottom of Friars Lane, so if you are in the area please do come and see us on the day!
