A selection of photos from our first Walk the Wall event on Saturday.  It was a fantastic day - started off with rain but we had sunshine by the end!  A beautiful route along Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland, passing historical landmarks and stunning views - and finishing it all off with a beer.  What more could you want on a Spring Saturday!

Thanks to everyone who came along, and special thanks to North East Guides for leading the walk, with the very able assistance of Fiona, one of COCO's board members.

COCO hosted a London Charity Dinner on 20th April 2017 which successfully raised enough money to build and equip a girls' dormitory at Maasai Academy, located in a hard to reach area of Maasailand.

The one-off event was sponsored by property and construction company K2 Consultancy and hosted by law firm Wedlake Bell at its HQ in the heart of the City of London.

Check out some pictures from the fantastic night above.
