Hornsby House Walk For Water

Every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related illness. In some parts of the world, women and children have to walk 20km just to reach clean water. On top of that, women in Africa carry approximately 20kg of water on their heads - the same as your average holiday suitcase.

Total Motion Events was delighted to support Hornsby House and Just a Drop with their sponsored 4km and 20km Walk for Water. As well as raising funds for this fantastic charity, it was a great family day out!

The Walk for Water began at Hornsby House School on Sunday 25th September with children of the school and their families heading out on their initial 4km walk/scoot around Wandsworth Common. 

Once back at school, the 4k’ers received their medals and the 20k’ers set off back to Wandsworth Bridge and up to the river to Parliament Square, then back again.  3 of the children from Hornsby House impressively completed the full 20km walk and looked like they had energy to spare as they finished in Battersea Park with medals, refreshments and rounds of applause, joining their families for a picnic!

A fantastic effort by all, well done from all of us at Total Motion Events.
