Sponsored Walk

Congratulations to the 10 Thamesmead Youth Voice members and The Link Thamesmead staff who dressed up in onesies on Saturday to take part in a 15 mile sponsored walk.

The eight hour walk which raised money for their group started at Westminster Bridge and continued along the Thasmesmead, taking in sights such as Tate Modern, The Globe, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, Cutty Sark and along the Ridgeway back to The Link.

The Link staff member, Claire said: “It was a real challenge but the young people got on with it, taking in the sights along the way, even when we hit the pain barrier at Charlton. The blisters grew bigger by the mile but we encouraged each other and soldiered on. Once on the Ridgeway we speeded up to The Link as Pizza was ready and waiting for us.”

Thamesmead Youth Voice members said…

“15 miles is a great achievement.”

“I feel like I can do anything now.”

“It was tiring but fun and I got back to The Link first so felt amazing.”

Naomi who is on a nine-month Gapper scheme at The Link said: “The young people were amazing! They were well behaved and worked together throughout the journey whilst having fun. I am proud of all of them and the staff and volunteers who took part and completed the walk.”
