Marylebone Project – London Night Walk 2024
Marylebone Project Joins the London Walk 2024
On the evening of Friday 22nd March 2024 we are taking part in the London Walk, organised the London Homeless Collective. This walk brings homelessness charities together to walk as one. With an estimated 1,000 walkers it will be quite a show of solidarity, walking together to help tackle homelessness on the streets of London.
Groups that are particularly vulnerable to violence and exploitation, such as young people, trans people and women, often walk through the night, travel on night buses or access 24 hour retail sites in order to stay awake and stay safe.
The walk is an opportunity to reflect on the experiences that vulnerable people face when without safe shelter, whilst putting your best foot forward and stepping up to a fundraising challenge that will change the individual journeys of vulnerable women.
Along the route, there’ll also be entertainment, pit stops and a fun, community atmosphere! We would love you to join our team of supporters walking for the Marylebone Project.

Why the Marylebone Project?
The inspirational work of the Marylebone Project doesn’t stand still as demonstrated by the 2 year anniversary of The Sanctuary – the UK’s only 24/7, 365 place of safety and support for women facing homelessness and crisis. Whether a woman would like to stop by briefly for a cup of tea and a shower, or takes part in our move-on programme into independent accommodation, we will journey with her.
All the money you raise will go towards the work of the Marylebone Project.
What difference could you make?
- £150 could fund 3 nights in an emergency bed for a woman facing crisis, setting them up for more stable accommodation whilst giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and health services
- £250 could buy 12 clients who have no access to public funds can buy a food shop of essentials when they first arrive at the Sanctuary.
- £350 could provide a woman who is taking the next step in her life and moving on into independent accommodation with a home starter pack, which includes anything they could need from duvets and pillows, to kitchen utensils, to a microwave.
