As you may know, every year a troupe of loyal Hearts & Souls supporters raises money by doing a sponsored walk across 16 London bridges. 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. 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.
