Fundraiser: Walk the Walk to enable Copland to Talk the Talk

The Anti-Academy Working Party at Copland School has organised a pub walk to take place on Friday 22nd November around London Bridge.

The purpose of the walk is to raise £300 to book a room for a public meeting.

Those wishing to take part should gather in the Old King's Head (King's Head Yard, 45-49 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1NA) from 6 o'clock on Friday.  The walk will start at 7 o'clock.

There will be a Dickensian theme to the walk as participants will visit some of the places mentioned by Dickens in Barnaby Rudge, Little Dorrit and The Pickwick Papers.

Places familiar to Edmund Burke, Geoffrey Chaucer, Oliver Goldsmith, Samuel Johnson, Samuel Pepys and William Shakespeare will be visited.

The walk will finish beside London Bridge tube station.

There will be a cost of £5 for joining the walk

"Crawl for a hall" or "Pub jumping for Tub thumping" would seem to be more appropriate names for the event and staggering past places of literary note doesn't polish the turd. Why don't they just donate the money they would have spent on drinks and travel?

Oh well I wish them luck. I'm off to finish my 3 day heroin binge in aid of Children in Need, while I read some Coleridge. ;-)

I'm sure they'll be grateful for your gracious support. Enjoy your heroin, but I'd keep away from quinine if I were you. Probably responsible for your jaundice.
