In a departure from tradition, the Master and Master Elect will be holding a joint fund-raising event in the form of a film-inspired sponsored walk around the City of London and environs on Saturday 23 June, starting at 10.30am. To encourage both old and young to take part, there will be a choice of routes, one extending to 11 miles and a less strenuous alternative of around half that distance.
Whichever route you choose, you will start and end at Staple Inn and, guided by a specially commissioned map (or app), have cinematic points of interest highlighted along the way, together with a few questions to test your film-going knowledge. The map will also show suitable places where you can refuel (bottled water will be provided but you are free to make your own lunch arrangements). The walk, for which you will be given a T-shirt, promises to be great fun, and its main aim is to raise money for the Company of Actuaries Charitable Trust as well as three national charities: Crisis (helping homeless people), the RAF100 Appeal and the Brain Tumour Charity.
The walk will be open to all actuaries as well as families, friends and colleagues. If you would like to take part then please download and return an application form (bit.ly/2pHmNni). Walkers can participate in teams of up to six people, or individually; only one application form per team is required. There is a small entry fee (£15 for individuals and the first member of a team; £10 for each additional team member). Entrants will be sent instructions on setting up a Virgin Money Giving page, linked to the Charitable Trust bank account.
We look forward to seeing you on what we hope will be a sunny summer's day. This is the company's main fundraising event, covering our two years as Master and Master Elect. You can support us by sponsoring via: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/The2Nicks
