Black lives matter walk- London to Edinburgh

please donate and share this! I plan to travel from London to Edinburgh within a month to spread the love across the country for charity. I will travel about 450k mostly by foot for a month to pledge money for this cause. My name's Roy Ile, I am an 18 year old mixed race student from East London and I plan to walk across the United Kingdom to represent all the people that have been affected by coloured hate crime over the last few decades. The money will go to young people from minority backgrounds who don't have a lot of money for a strong future I am going to be living wildly and on basic rations. Only stopping at major cities to collect food when I need to, wash and get electricity. Every time I reach a major city I will be having a rest day where I get to explore the city. If you know anyone that wants to help me along the way that would be fantastic but I'll be using camps, shops and hotels once they open to access this. I'll be getting water from local cafes and camps. I am going to stop off at Ilford(London) Cambridge, Boston, Skegness, Hull, York, Kendal, Carlisle, Hawick and Edinburgh. Then I'll take the train back. All of which I will be using my own saved money as my part for the cause Due to the ethics of the Stephen Lawrence foundation I am eager to raise at least £500 for their charity. (proudly has passed this now) The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust was founded to tackle inequality in all forms. We're dedicated to transforming the life chances of young people and improving the world in which they live. We support young people from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice. We support community groups to develop new skills and play an active role in building stronger communities. And we help organisations to create a more inclusive culture in order to achieve lasting social impact. After everything that has happened to people like George Floyd, Shukri Abdi and Stephen Lawrence himself, it's marvellous that charities are rewarding people from minority backgrounds for their hard work, rather than treating them wrongly because of their skintone Share this with your family, friends, colleagues , teachers and acquaintances for the best outcome and to help encourage a stop to racism! Say no to equality! All lives matter no matter who they are! follow me on Instagram @rollo2001 or follow my go fund me page for updates
