The Walk for WasteAid 2018, London 23 June

Starting near Putney Bridge (Fulham, west London), we will head east towards the City, zigzagging across the array of historic bridges, with a break for lunch in Vauxhall. The finish line is in Southwark past the majestic Tower Bridge.

Everyone is welcome, and there is no obligation to complete the full 25km. Anyone preferring to do the 10km walk can join the group at lunchtime.


Walk for WasteAid organiser, Sally Talbot said: “We are looking forward to meeting old friends and new at the biggest ever ‘Walk for WasteAid’. It’s easy to sign up and everyone is welcome to join us and have some fun. We’ll be doing a litter pick along the way and providing refreshments at the start, middle and finish line. It’s a beautiful route through the historic city of London, and not to be missed!”

WasteAid supporters make it happen – the first Walk for WasteAid, 2016

Mike Webster, WasteAid CEO said: “Previously the Walk for WasteAid has seen supporters climb to the top of Mount Snowdon and Scafell Pike, the highest peaks in Wales and England. This year we’d like to attract loads more of you to join us, and we’re hoping that the London Bridges walk will bring plenty of you out in support.”

Help make the event special in your own way, whether it’s fancy dress, playing an instrument made from rubbish, or even carrying a wheelie bin on your back!
