Help us raise £60,000 for 60 years!

2022 marks St Giles 60th anniversary and we are hosting a series of events throughout the year to celebrate. One of these is a St Giles walk where we are aiming to collectively raise £60,000 to ensure our services can continue to be flexible and responsive to the cost of living crisis.


Join us on our 60th fundraising walk

When - Wednesday 14 September

What - A 30 km walk across London.  St Giles staff, volunteers and supporters will walk together across London taking in a route that visits St Giles's locations.  We will meet in Regents Park for lunch for a chance to refuel, share stories, compare sore toes and have fun!

Where - There will be two groups of walkers departing from different locations near our HQ in Camberwell, south London.

  • Group 1 - St Giles, Georgian House, 64-68 Camberwell Church Street, London SE5 8JB
  • Group 2 - Brewbird Cafe, 29 Peckham Road, London SE5 8UA

All walkers will be provided with a free packed lunch before setting off.

Fundraising target - we are asking everyone that takes part to raise a minimum of £60 - £1 for every year St Giles has existed. We hope that this will encourage as many people as possible to take part in the walk.
