A hospice has announced the return of the popular family-friendly walk of some of the capital's most iconic bridges and landmarks.

Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care has confirmed the family-friendly London Bridges Walk would take place on Sunday, March 24, with two separate routes from Battersea Park's Pear Tree Cafe to accommodate various fitness levels.

One route is a five-mile tour of five of London's storied bridges, concluding at Parliament Square, while the ten-mile journey features a dozen bridges, concluding at Tower Bridge.

Participating walkers will receive a medal upon completion, as a memento of the day.

The funds raised from entrance fees and sponsorships will support essential care for individuals suffering from progressive, life-limiting illnesses in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

Last year, Becky participated in the London Bridges Walk in honour of her mum, Dorene, who was treated at the Peace Hospice Inpatient Unit at the end of her life.

Becky recalled: "Mum was diagnosed with bladder cancer in September 2022 and within a couple of months, her cancer became terminal.

"It was then that we found out there was a bed available at the Peace Hospice.

"From that point on, Mum got her dignity back - she had a really peaceful, pain-free, dignified death and that’s all that we could ask."

Becky added that participating in the walk as a family was an act of gratitude and a tribute to her mum's memory – as well as an opportunity to appreciate London's sights.

Tracey Hancock, Rennie Grove's fundraising director, described the London Bridges Walk as a "fantastic family day out" that people could enjoy at their own pace.

She said: "I’d like to thank our sponsor, Origin Global, for supporting this year’s event and ensuring we can raise even more money to fund our vital services for local people living with life-limiting illnesses."

Tickets are priced at £15 for adults and £10 for children, whilst children under five can attend free of charge.
