Community spirit can sometimes be slightly lacking in London. In a big city, it can be hard to get to know your neighbours – but it’s good to give back and being able to do it in a way that combines exploring London and raising money is a beautiful combination.
The Camden Pirate Castle is a wonderful community centre, based funnily enough by the lock in Camden, providing a place for young children to learn and play with boats and canoes, as well as offering an indoor space for various activities including yoga and tai-chi and all around doing valuable work for the local community. So join them for their fourth Walk Like A Pirate Day, a 12 mile walk on 22 June alongside London’s waterways to raise money for the centre.
Fancy dress is optional and with no charge to participate and no minimum sponsorship required, so it is a relaxed way to raise money for a great cause and take in the London river scenery.
The walk kicks off at 12pm outside Tottenham Hale tube station with a group photo and will end back at the Pirate House for celebratory drinks for all who survived.
