The Worshipful Company 0f Woolmen's Sheep Drive - 29th September 2019

 
After dipping our toe in the water at the Sheep Drive in 2018 The Master is hopeful of securing spaces for 3 or 4 teams of 10 Guild members each to drive their sheep over London Bridge. It is open to all Freemen of the City of London, or guests accompanied by a Freeman, so an opportunity for non-Liverymen to take part in this fun charity event.  The minimum donation in 2018 was £60 per person and all proceeds go to the Lord Mayor's Appeal and the Woolmen's Charitable Trust.  If we are able to secure spaces we hope to add an optional lunch afterwards.  Please do apply early to express interest as we will need to book the slots in early May. Apply in the usual way https://www.guild-freemen-london.co.uk/events/home/sheep-drive-london-bridge-2019
