    The Women and Health organisation are hosting their annual sponsored walk on Saturday (October 10).

    The route will take in the blue plaques commemorating influential women who have lived in Camden and finish at the Women and Health Centre in Carol Street at 3pm for the unveiling of a plaque dedicated to Boo Armstrong, community activist and healthcare volunteer, who died in 2012.

    The seven-mile walk walk starts at 11am outside St John's Church in Downshire Hill, NW3, and takes between two and three hours to complete with people of all ages expected to attend.

    Last year saw around 40 people complete the walk, raising over £8,000 for Women and Health. 

    The money will go towards providing therapies and health focused activities for local women to improve their overall wellbeing and overcome difficult times in their lives. Many of the women treated are survivors of domestic violence, rape and other trauma, carers, single and young mothers, women with mental health issues or learning disabilities.
