Walking the line in London

London, 01 June 2014

Teams from across the London office celebrated Islington Giving Week in June by walking the 13.1 mile boundary of the Islington borough. The event helped raise awareness of Macquarie’s partnership with Islington Giving, which works to alleviate poverty and isolation in the borough.

An unexpected heatwave meant a few teams were unable to complete the event within the planned four hours, as the allure of refreshments at local hostelries along the way delayed some participants.

Macquarie hosted the closing event for all 11 teams involved – including other corporates - where participants heard more about how they could get involved with Islington Giving whilst refuelling over pizza and drinks.
