With only 43 days to go until Christmas, it’s about time you embraced the winter chill and donned a penguin costume. Why? Why not! No, seriously, get your hands on a penguin suit and get ready to waddle for two kilometres to help raise money for the Richard House Children’s Hospice.
The charity is attempting to defend its Guinness World Record title for the biggest gathering of people dressed as penguins and has orchestrated a course around London to encourage fundraising. The waddle will take place on Wednesday November 12 at 6.45pm until 9pm and after enjoying the views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the Shard participants will finish at More London.
Richard House Children’s Hospice is London’s oldest children’s hospice and works towards improving the lives of children and young people with life-threatening, life-limiting and complex healthcare needs.
Want to get involved? Registration is £15 and gets you a free penguin suit! You must raise at least £100 to take part, so start buttering up your colleagues with cakes ASAP. Click here for a registration form.
