We had a brilliant time at the Westfield to Westfield Walk on (9th September) where we joined circa 150 members of the URW UK’s finance team on their 13-mile walk between the two shopping centres.
The walk was arranged to celebrate the easing of lockdown and to welcome everyone back from their summer holidays.
We are so grateful to them for selecting our charity and for helping us to spread smiles to seriously ill and hospitalised children.
Thanks to Lola’s Cupcakes for sweetening the journey and providing some refreshments along the way.
