Bridges of Britain is back!

Calling all walkers as our flagship fundraising event Bridges of Britain is back! This May you can join #TeamLymphoma in London or walk in your local area.

Taking part is simple – join the Lymphoma Action team in London on Sunday the 22nd May and walk across 10 iconic London Bridges, or walk your own local 7-mile route any time throughout May, crossing at least one bridge in your area. Don’t forget to invite your friends and family to join you and together you can help raise funds to support our work.

The London event will start at Vauxhall Bridge and crisscross the Thames to finish at the iconic Tower Bridge. Whether you want to walk your own route on a local leisurely stroll, or join the collective jaunt around the Capital, you will receive a medal and a certificate after the event, as well as a fabulous purple t-shirt to walk in – so you’ll be easy to spot on your travels!

“The walk is great fun and open to everyone to enjoy at their own pace with friends and family” says Sarah Thorn, Community and Partnerships Manager at Lymphoma Action. “Last year was amazing with people crossing their local bridges around the country, from Hull to Devon. We have raised an incredible £82,000 since the launch of this event in 2019 and are looking forward to another fantastic walk. In the UK someone receives a diagnosis of lymphoma every 27 minutes. By taking part you will be helping us to raise even more funds and awareness about lymphoma as the UK’s fifth most common cancer.”
