13 Bridges Walk – London
August 14th

One of our members (Howard "Chuck" Berry) plans to walk the 13 Bridges route that he walked a few weeks when in aid of the Saafa Charity.

This time he would like to do the walk with his peers from the LDPSG. 

 

The walk could be done to raise money for a chosen charity, all abilities absolutely welcome and encouraged to come along. It will not be a CFT – quite the opposite!

 

A walk and talk opportunity with like minded peers.
