Access to Art, also known as A2A, a charity that helps disabled art lovers to visit galleries, is to hold a sponsored walk in London to raise funds and awareness of the organisation.

The two-mile event begins at Tate Modern at 1.30pm on 29 September and will follow the Thames Path over Lambeth Bridge and on to Tate Britain. The charity hopes to raise at least £1,000 from the event.

A2A provides a door- to-door service for disabled people in five London boroughs.

A short film featuring Sir Norman Wisdom, Expresso, which tells the tale of a day in the life of a lively cafe, is available online for a £5 donation.
