On 9th September we’re walking from Westfield Stratford City to Westfield London (roughly a half marathon!) to raise money for Spread a Smile, who bring joy and laughter to seriously ill children and teenagers during long hospital stays.
After over a year of lockdowns, we’re celebrating bringing our shopping centres back to life and bringing our teams safely back together, as well as raising money for a fantastic charity.
We’ll be stopping to wave along the way at two of Spread a Smile’s NHS partner hospitals, the Royal London Hospital Whitechapel and The Evelina Children’s Hospital, Westminster.
Spread a Smile’s teams of entertainers (and therapy dogs) visit children at their bedsides, creating positive memories for them, their parents and siblings, as well as painting radiotherapy masks, providing family support and organising regular family outings and events.
