Barclays, UNICEF and UK broadcaster Heart radio’s Have a Heart charity are continuing to invite the public to register to take part in a sponsored night walk on Wednesday, 21 September.
The Barclays Take One Small Step into the Night walk will start at 19:00 (UK time) from Potters Fields Park by Tower Bridge in London.
More than 350 people have already signed up, and the public is encouraged to join the event and beat last year’s record participation, which saw 800 people following a 10-kilometre route across central London.
Funds raised from the walk will go towards transforming the lives of children in the UK and around the world by providing education and improving healthcare.
Many of those who have registered for this year’s walk have already launched their fundraising efforts. To help participants, a http://www.barclays-step.com/ (new window) is being made available. The guide also includes details about competitions linked to fundraising, and opportunities to win prizes such as tickets to the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals or a concert at The O2, London.
Charley Boorman, UNICEF Ambassador, actor and adventurer, participated in the walk last year: “I took part with my family and it was an amazing evening. I have seen UNICEF’s work first hand and know what a difference this will make to the lives of thousands of children. I hope people will sign up to take part today.”

The public can register to take part individually or as a team by completing a form via the link on the top-right of this page and starting their fundraising efforts from today.
The registration fee of £15 will directly benefit UNICEF and Heart radio’s Have a Heart charity.

Step into the Night is part of Barclays community investment programme, which last year invested £55.3m and the time and skills of more than 62,000 employees to support 1.5 million people in disadvantaged communities around the world.
