CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle Sponsored Walk 2015
Date: Saturday October 10th 2015, 11.30am-4pm
Starts: Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AZ (outside the main entrance)
Registration Fee: £5 unwaged, £10 waged
What is it?
A 4.8 mile guided walk through London’s history, led by CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle. We will celebrate World Mental Health Day, with fun talks, art and performances along the route. Come along, have fun, meet new people and help raise much needed funds for CoolTan Arts. We are excited to announce that we will be joined by the historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes.
Why are we raising money?
CoolTan Arts provide support in an area which has one of the highest incidences of mental distress in Western Europe. We enable people to develop their potential, reconnect with their aspirations, recover and enjoy life!
Due to severe funding cuts to organisations like CoolTan Arts we need your help to ensure we can continue making a difference. All money raised is much needed and will go directly to support people with mental distress.
