Charity Walk for SSAFA
A few friends from Scouts and I completed a charity walk from Osterley Library for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. We set off from Osterley at 07:30am and walked through Chiswick, Hammersmith, and Kensington; we passed many landmarks to reach SSAFA HQ in Central London. After our 14 and a half mile walk, we were able to have our photos taken with two Beefeaters from the Tower of London.
We asked family and friends to sponsor us so that we could give SSAFA a donation that would go to a good cause. We raised £554 in total, which will go towards service men and women and their families, as well as veterans.
After doing this charity walk, I felt a great amount of pride as I knew what I had done would go towards helping people who look after our countries and support people world-wide.
