Power walk inspires women envoys

London’s women envoys stopped traffic as they strode through the streets on a sponsored Power Walk that took in monuments to British women to raise funds for the Women in Diplomatic Service Scholarship programme.

In the Diamond Jubilee year, the walk fittingly started at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre. The route then went past the statue of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst outside Parliament, before heading down Whitehall, past the Women in World War II Memorial.

An extended route took in the Victoria Memorial before heading back over the Thames for iconic views of London.

Ladies joined in the festivities on a sun-drenched South Bank, before ending the morning with a light lunch at the Royal Festival Hall.
