The Kindu Trust Monopoly Walk

Last week The Kindu Trust organised a sponsored Monopoly Walk to raise money for our work in Ethiopia.

Preparing to set off

The task was immense, to walk to and photograph every street and station 0n the London Monopoly board.

The walk took the participants round some of London’s most famous landmarks including Nelsons Column, Oxford Circus, Hyde Park, Kings Cross Station and Fleet Street.

They could take any route they fancied providing that they documented their journey through the heart of London so we could share it here. The weather was patchy as was some peoples sense  of direction. But everyone made it round and the walk was a great success.

Twenty eight people participated throughout the day which was a great turn out, and they have raised an incredible £1585… and counting!

The first prize went to Stefan Cook and Veronica Gee who completed the walk in a speedy 6 hours under the team name ‘The Self Flagellation Society’ (pretty apt as Stefan was walking barefoot for the entire route). They were welcomed with tea, cake, and music after a long day on the road. Thanks to all those that took part and stay posted for further fundraising events with The Kindu Trust.
