A walk through history will raise cash for the mayor of Islington’s chosen charities on Sunday.

The Clerkenwell and Islington Guides’ Association are celebrating 30 years of adventures by leading this free walk – and attendees are asked to gather at Angel Station for an 11am start.

The mayor Cllr Dave Poyser has chosen Freightliners and Caris this year’s charities.

A spokesperson for the association, which is now rebranding itself as Islington Guided Walks, said: “This will be a fun way to raise funds for two of Islington’s excellent charities whilst enjoying the local history of Angel.

“Discover memorials on the streets whey they lived, to those who gave their lives in WW1.

“Meet the 4feet 11inch leader of the Suffragettes’ Bodyguard known as the ‘Jiujitzu suffragette’ and see the pub where the notorious Hatton Garden heist was planned by a gang of senior citizens.”

The walk also highlights 200 years since the completion of the Islington tunnel on the Regent’s Canal.
