The Great East End Walk returns… with a difference!

We’re excited to announce that our flagship Great East End Walk is back for September 2020, but with a difference! This year, we’re asking you to take on this iconic ten mile walk, celebrating all things East End, on a day of your choice in September.

Starting at St Joseph's Hospice, the route this year will take you through both well-trodden and lesser known parts of London's East End and into the City of London. Snap photos next to iconic landmarks, learn interesting facts along the way, and be part of something amazing!

The walk has been designed so as you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the City, and East London, at your own pace, while also serving to keep you, our staff and volunteers, and our community safe during these uncertain times.

By registering, you’ll receive everything you need to take on this exciting challenge, including:

  • A suggested route map & facts
  • A t-shirt
  • A souvenir
  • A finisher’s medal

In addition, we’re encouraging all walkers to generate £100 in sponsorship to help keep our vital services running during the lockdown. So whether you tackle it as a team – or make it a personal challenge – you’ll be taking the first steps towards ensuring we can provide the best level of care to those who need it the most.

Registration is open here, and if you have any questions, or would like to learn more – do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the Fundraising team on

We would like to hear from you
