On Saturday 22nd September One Trust were presented with a cheque from the organisers of the Nightingale walk (pictured), which (added to the proceeds from T-shirt sales on the day) totaled a whopping £2,000.00 donation!!
The walk, which took place on Saturday 22nd June 2019, was the 40th consecutive year of the event, making it one of the longest running community charity events in the country. Local people from in and around the Nightingale Lane area in Wandsworth walked the 20 mile long walk along the Thames path raising donations for One Trust and the following local good causes;
- Queen Elizabeth House.
- Wandsworth Community Transport
- The Haven
- Oak Lodge School
- 12th/14th Battersea Westside Scouts.
Huge thanks go out to the organisers and walkers on the day, our staff who manned the checkpoint station at Richmond, our CEO Will who walked the full very (very!) hot 20 miles and of course everyone who sponsored a walker/ supported the cause.
