500 staff Walk 3,500 miles for Ministry of Stories

On Friday 27th May over 500 colleagues took to the streets of London to take part in The Walk – an annual Penguin Random House institution. Collectively we trekked over 3,500 miles and raised more than £7,000 for Ministry of Stories, a creative writing and mentoring centre for young people.

Our 7 mile route took us from our London offices on The Strand, along the South Bank, and up through the City. The route also passed through Ministry of Stories’ base in Hackney, where colleagues had the opportunity to take part in a mini writing challenge to create amusing definitions for unusual words - the winning entry defining ‘grough’ as ‘ a very, very posh garage’.
