New Series of Walks For Amnesty
We have a new series of benefit walks for Amnesty this summer, starting this weekend. The walks will cover show how Human Rights issues have been ever present in London history. If you come along you’ll not only have a really interesting evening but also help out a worthwhile cause – all money raised goes to support Amnesty’s work. The walks will end in the pub so there will be chance to discuss things further with the guides and Amnesty Members.
