We did it!! 16 miles and almost £3000!

On Friday, 14th September, a bunch of well prepared accountants, payroll, VAT and admin specialists set out to conquer the streets of London to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Leaving our Woodford Head Office at 8.30 am, we armed ourselves with water, energy bars, plasters and spare flip-flops, and headed off with smiles on our faces toward our final destination: our satellite office in Soho Square.

We took a scenic route from Woodford, travelling through Wanstead, Leyton and Stratford – across the Olympic Park – then on to Hackney. We then headed towards Tower bridge and St Katherine’s dock, before walking along the embankment and through to Soho.

Leaving the office…

A quick stop for Joe and Steven…

Our thanks to the staff at 40 Dean Street for allowing us to collapse in an exhausted heap while we ate our pizzas.

The walk took 5 hours 15 minutes, and we averaged around 38,000 steps per person. With 24 walkers, that means roughly 912,000 steps – raising almost £3000 – a penny for every three steps taken!

Congratulations to our team – we trained hard and it paid off!  Huge thanks to the supporting team who tailed us in Marissa’s car to provide drinks, chocolate and first aid along the way.

It was a fantastic day and a massive achievement – both in terms of personal achievements and working towards our £10,000 goal for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

The team at Nordens!!
