We completed our Thames Bridge Challenge on Friday 8th September with a team of walkers that included members of staff, Board Directors and volunteers.

Walking from Battersea Bridge to Tower Bridge crossing twelve bridges, our walkers encountered the full gamut of weather from cloud to heavy rain to sunshine while clocking up a distance of over 10 miles. All the funds we raise from this activity will go towards supporting our local community groups.

Our local community groups are run entirely by volunteers and provide a valuable service to many beneficiaries with their mix of educational, leisure and social activities. They also help support our national aim to tackle social isolation by offering a forum for friendship and companionship . 

The group network is the foundation on which the CSRF was built and continues to operate in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Belinda Stalker, 1957-2017
We recently lost our friend and colleague who died unexpectedly after a short illness. Belinda worked for the CSRF for 27 years and was very much involved with our groups throughout this time. As a mark of respect, the walking team have renamed this year’s challenge Belinda’s Walk in her memory.
