SMART Howard House, our residential treatment service in Oxford are holding a sponsored walk along the River Thames

When?

30th July 2017.

Where?

We will be meeting at Rye Farm car park, in Abingdon (OX14 3NN) at 9:30am and will set off at 10:00am. The walk along the Thames path for approximately 10 miles to Donnington Bridge in East Oxford. We expect the walk to take between 4-5 hours.

Who can take part?

Anyone who is able to walk for 10 miles. We will be taking it slowly to take in the beautiful scenery of the River Thames, this is most definitely a walk, not a race. SMART Staff, volunteers, residents and friends will all be taking part in the walk.

Why are we raising money through sponsorship?

At SMART Howard House we are committed to providing our residents with a diverse range of activities to enjoy as part of their recovery journey. Funds raised from the walk will:

  • Contribute towards interesting and fun activities for SMART Howard House residents, such as outings to the sea-side, museums and cinema
  • Help to fund alternative therapies for residents, including massage and yoga sessions
  • Support the team in continuing to provide a high quality service for individuals starting their recovery journey
