The Language of Kindness Walk For Nurses

To celebrate the important contribution of nurses, and the 70th anniversary of the NHS, on Friday 6 July, VINTAGE and Christie Watson, author of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story, will walk 10,000 steps through London – the number of steps a nurse walks in one shift. All proceeds from the walk will go to the RCN Foundation. 

The Language of KindnessWalk For Nurses will leave the VINTAGE offices, Penguin Random House, 20 Vauxhall Bridge Road, SW1V 2SA, at midday on Friday 6 July. It will finish at the Royal College of Nursing headquarters, 20 Cavendish Square, SW1G 0RN, at approximately 2pm, where lunch and drinks will be served.

To take part, please register by emailing Tamara Gervasoni: with your t-shirt size (S/M/L) and your next of kin name and contact telephone number.
