David Britten (pictured above) is local resident and St Mary’s parishioner. He shared this recently about his experience of Spring Steps last year and the team he’s putting together this year. Register for Spring Steps here or join David’s team (instructions below).
“Last year we walked 1,397,249 steps and raised £2,525.25, helping KLS walk over 5 million steps and raise over £12,000. Here is a video of last year’s campaign:
This year we want to support KLS again, a local charity who does fantastic work in our community. If you don’t know what KLS does…
Katherine Low Settlement has been serving Battersea and the wider Wandsworth community since 1924. They are dedicated to building stronger communities and enable people to challenge and find ways out of poverty and isolation. KLS run a range of their own community projects to support thousands of children, young people and their families, women, older people and refugee communities. Visit their website to find out more www.klsettlement.org.uk
