Overview of role
Circle the City is a sponsored walk in the City of London covering 10km/5km. Circle the City aims to raise awareness and funds for some of the world's poorest communities, whilst giving people the opportunity to see more of London's historic and religious buildings and have a fun day out.

We would welcome teams of volunteers as well as individual helpers.
