Story

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.

We have now competed 112 miles (in 7 days) after walking another 17.5 miles on 22 June from Reading to Marlow via Henley on Thames, where we enjoyed the spectacle of the Henley Women's Regatta. Our journey also took us through the pretty villages of Sonning, Shiplake and the lovely Sonning, Marsh, Hambleden, Hurley and Temple locks.

We met many fellow walkers of the Thames Path and who were interested in the work of Branches.

We resume our Walk on 20 July from Marlow to Windsor.



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.
