Join us for the 5th instalment of the Ten Bridge Trek, as we cross over 10 of London’s most iconic bridges and help to raise vital funds to support Rohingya Refugees!
The Rohingya are a minority Muslim group, formerly living in Myanmar. However, many have been forced to flee to neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh in order to escape persecution and violence.
In recent years, violence has taken hold, resulting in many of the Rohingya being driven from their homes. In the worst cases, entire communities have been completely destroyed. Now, these people have nowhere to go; they have no homes or belongings and many have lost friends, family members and loved ones.
As a charity working directly to help the Rohingya, our aid comes in many different forms, including food, clean water, shelter and accommodation, medicine, health supplies, and hygiene and sanitation. This allows us to help those most in need as much as possible, identifying what these vulnerable people need to survive and doing everything we can to provide it.
By taking part in the Ten Bridge Trek, you’ll be fundraising and helping the Rohingya refugee crisis by providing water and food to families for a month.
It’s FREE to sign up for the trek. All we ask is that each participants raises a minimum of £100. This is a very easy amount to raise and if you’re nervous about it or worried that you won’t hit your target, give us a call and we will be happy to give you some advice and guide you.
There is a registration fee for participants from Birmingham if you require travel to London. This registration fee is non refundable.
Sign up now and get your walking shoes on! (Oh, and don’t forget your camera!)
Make sure you get your friends and family to join you! This is truly one of the most scenic walks that you can do in London!
As part of your registration, we will need to take your contact details and also any medical conditions.
