The LOOPY Walkers are undertaking their final fundraising Challenge by walking the length of the River Thames from its source in the Cotswolds to its mouth (Thames Barrier) in London - 184 miles!!.

Over the last 2 years we have walked the LOOP (150 miles), the Capital Ring (78 miles) and have raised over £9000 for Branches Hostel.

This year’s walk is raising money to recruit an in-house specialist Mental Health Clinical Practitioner, who will supports residents with multiple mental health needs.

£30 will provide 1 hour’s specialist support to our clients.

We are almost half way through our Challenge, having walked another 47 miles over 3 days this last weekend and have now arrived at Reading. After a very wet start on Fri, the rain eventually eased and the sun came out in the afternoon......horray!! The Chilterns Hills were a challenge after walking 38 miles, but we survived!

We resume our walk on 22nd June, when we will walk another 17.5 miles from Reading via Henley-on-thames to Marlow.

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.
