Previous events

Charity Challenge 2023

The 2023 event was a 25 mile walk around London, which took place on Thursday 29th June. 

We had a really fabulous day exploring previously unknown (to most of us) canals, parks, gardens and corners of London.

There were over 50 industry friends and colleagues who took part, and it’s fair to say that we all know each other a little better after a day’s walking!

Our celebration meal took place at The Lockhouse in Paddington.

We were very well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our pie and chips!

Our retail wear specialist S66 Sportwear designed these rather special t-shirts for everyone to wear!
