Mind Walk 2022

Just a short and sweet post today. Along with some of my colleagues from work, I had the opportunity to take part in the 2022 Mind Walk – a 10km walk around Central London to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

The goal of the day was to raise £50,000 (which was smashed! More on that later) and to hopefully raise a little awareness for Mind as we went with our t-shirts and flags.

Denise Welch of Loose Women, who is an ambassador for Mind also took part in the walk.

It was a brilliant route which took us from the starting point at Archbishop’s Park in Lambeth, past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

From there we walked along the bank of the Thames and under the London Eye.

Past this gorgeous pre-grouping railway sign. I always find something to nerd out over!

The route then took us over the Millennium Bridge to St Paul’s Cathedral.

We passed by Trafalgar Square to see Horatio Nelson.

We then made our way through Whitehall past the Cenotaph war memorial.

And Downing Street. I was tempted to slide my CV under the gate. #RichardForPM

We then looped our way back around to Parliament and I stopped to see Oliver Cromwell’s statue. A divisive figure in our nation’s history to say the least.

Then we went into Lambeth, past Lambeth Palace and back to the start/finish line!

I received an email from Mind to say that so far the walk has raised £53,624 which is fantastic! There is still plenty of time to donate.
