Saturday 28 September: Stride London’s Spectacular Skyline by Twilight
A unique, skyline-spectacular sponsored walk through Greenwich and Blackheath to support South East London`s two hospices promises a night to remember on Saturday 28 September 2019. With selfie-spot views over the capital worthy of any Instagram feed, the Twilight Walk hopes to raise thousands of pounds for good neighbours St Christopher’s Hospice and Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice. New for this year, 2019’s route has been adapted to include even more iconic London vistas, including Royal Greenwich Park, the Old Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark, just as the sun sets over the city. Starting on the north-side of Blackheath Common, the walk finishes on the south-side of the common, just minutes from Blackheath`s bars and restaurants where fundraisers can choose to spend the rest of their Saturday night, celebrating their achievements! This year’s Twilight Walk is kindly sponsored by Grant Saw solicitors.
