Proceeds will go to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital

Hundreds of volunteers joined forces this weekend to raise thousands of pounds for charity by walking the length of the borough.

The event, organised as part of the Willesden Temple’s 25th anniversary celebrations, saw more than 400 residents trek from the Kenton Temple in Westfield Lane to the Willesden Temple in Willesden Lane.

The 5.3 mile trip raised more than £20,000 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

Volunteers from both temples also joined in a community clean up day at the Grand Union Canal on Saturday, June 8 before Sunday’s walk.
