This is a 12k fun, friendly, fitness and family guided walk organised by Nepal Village Foundation to support our education project in Nepal. We organised a great successful 14k walking event last year so we are organising a similar walking event again this year on 12th of April. This year we are also including families with children to participate in the walk. As we will be exploring some of the most famous historical parts of Docklands, the walk will be of interest to a wide range of people. The walk coincides with the schools Easer holidays and is also on the eve of Virgin London Marathon. It will be a fun day out for all, providing a little bit of fitness and fundraising for a good cause.

The Cutty Sark- one of the last and fastest British tea clippers built in 1869
