We aim to run several events each year including a Race Night, our London Bridges Walk and a Christmas Raffle. If you would like to run an event for our benefit, we have a team of helpers to make it as easy and successful as possible. And, of course, we’ll help you publicise it. If you are interested in planning an event, please contact us.
The Hearts & Souls London Bridges Walk. Sunday, September 24th 2017
Every year we organize a hugely enjoyable London Bridges Walk which takes place on the final Sunday of September. In 2016 we had 50 walkers who valiantly criss-crossed 16 London bridges from Putney Bridge to Tower Bridge. Thanks to their efforts and the generosity of their many sponsors, our walkers raised over £7,500.
This year’s walk will take place on Sunday 24th September 2017. Would you and your family and friends like to join us? We’ll be meeting at 8.30am at the Hurlingham Club close to Putney Bridge and the walk will finish at around 1.30pm at Tower Bridge. It’s approximately 12 miles or 33,000 steps mostly on pavements and hard surfaces but there are some steps to climb to cross some of the bridges. To make it easy to get there from the South Bucks area, we will be laying on a coach from Old Amersham. This event is a big fundraiser for us. It’s also great fun and a wonderful way to take in the London river views and landmarks. Click here to see the illustrated route guide.
We’re hoping 50 to 75 walkers will join us, raising an average of £100 in sponsorship to meet our target of £5000. Of course, we will be delighted to exceed this and with your support, either as a walker or sponsor, we are sure we can do this. To maximise fundraising and to make it as easy as possible, we have opened a special online team fundraising page on JustGiving and will give you full details of how to join it when you register. We will also provide you with a sponsorship form for off-line donations.
For operational reasons we need to limit the number of walkers to 75 so we recommend you register as soon as possible. Registration is free. Because we have very limited car parking facilities at the Hurlingham Club and to minimise travel costs, we’ll also be arranging a coach from Old Amersham for those interested in this (£10 a head for the round trip). The coach will collect you from Tower Bridge for the return journey. Public transport is another option.
How to register
Please email us giving the following details for each walker:
- Email address
- Mobile ‘phone number (just in case we need to contact you on the day)
- How you plan to travel to the Hurlingham Club
We will send you full details but please don’t worry if you don’t receive an instant reply from us as we are not using an automated process.
If you or a loved one have been through the cardiac rehabilitation programme, you will know how superb it is at helping people get back to normal after cardiac events. Supporting this event is a great way to say thanks to the brilliant rehabilitation team and to ensure patients can continue to benefit from this vital service.
