Sleep Walk

10 KM



This December, join us for a 10km fundraising walk through central London and take steps to fight homelessness.

We’re facing a national crisis — across the country, far too many people are living with homelessness and bad housing. Come together with friends, colleagues, and Shelter supporters to brave the winter cold and help raise money to support people without a home.

On the night

You’ll meet at Waterloo for 6pm, then embark on a 10km loop through central London. Together, you’ll walk past Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral and through Covent Garden’s Christmas markets. Finally, you’ll cross the Thames at Westminster Bridge, and finish back at Waterloo.
