Cullinan's Solar Strollers

Edward Cullinan Architects have raised £3,307.50 (so far) for Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres.

A team of 12 from Cullinans walked 20 miles around London in the annual Maggie's Night Hike and Johnny Winter cycled 100 miles to raise money for the charity.

This year we are designing the Maggie's Centre North East in Newcastle. Taking part in the Night Hike and cycling over the Southern Downs enabled us to make another contribution to this worthy cause.

The Night Hike Team's name, Cullinan's Solar Strollers, was inspired by the solar passive design for the Newcastle Maggie's Centre, which also inspired the glow-in-the-dark sunglasses worn on the night.

Stocking up on energy with a good meal at the Barbican before we start.

Quick warm up.

The first stop; Channel 4 - still looking quite fresh

Well earned break just over half-way (10.3 miles) at the London Maggie's Centre.

Nearing the end at the Serpentine Pavilion.

Maggie's lanterns at the Horse Guards.

The end, back at the Guildhall... not looking quite as fresh at 4.30am... but we all made it.
