This year’s final Challenge is to raise money for a specialist Mental Health Clinical Practitioner, who will supports residents with multiple mental health needs.

Having set out on 10th May, we completed our Thames Path Challenge on 7th September, walking the 184 miles of the River Thames, from its Source in the Cotswolds to its Mouth, the Thames Barrier, in 12 days.

This is the story of our journey through Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and of course London, with some of the most memorable images of our adventure.

Day 1-3  Source to Swinford  48 miles

Day 4-6  Swinford to Reading  47 miles

Day 7     Reading to Marlow     17 miles

Day 8     Marlow to Datchet     16 miles

Day 9     Datchet to Hampton Court   19 miles

Day10    Hampton Court to Barnes    13 miles          

Day 11   Barnes to Tower Bridge       13 miles

Day 12   Tower Bridge to the Barrier  11 miles

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the LOOPY Walkers, sponsors and supporters in our amazing journey.

Branches (Waltham Forest Churches Night Shelter)

Waltham Forest Churches Night Shelter (Branches) provide short-term housing for 27 single men and women in their purpose-built hostel in Walthamstow, London E17 24 hours/365 days a year.  They support residents and former residents, many of whom have mental health, drug and alcohol addictions, through a dedicated team of Support Workers.

Their Support Team provides general advice and advocacy on all welfare and housing matters, and facilitates access to training, education, volunteering and employment opportunities.  A primary aim is to support individuals redevelop lost life-skills, which are vital to ensure they move-on more confidently and feel they have better control of their lives.

Their immediate priority however is to provide better Resettlement Services to current and former residents, and to to establish our own in-house specialist Clinical Practitioner who will offer an enhanced level of support through day-to-day clinical involvement to those with mental health needs.
