London Thames Bridges Walk 2018

Engineers for Change (Sierra Leone) in partnership with the Fourah Bay College Alumni Association (UK)

London Thames Bridges Walk

on Sunday 10 June 2018 starting at 10.00am
(meeting at Putney Bridge LU Station at 9.30am)

Do you want to get fitter this summer and support a worthy cause at the same time?

Why not join us for our annual fun challenge on a 25 km walk along the Thames crossing 16 of London’s iconic bridges from Putney to Tower Bridge.

The walk is a charity fundraising event organised by Engineers for Change (Sierra Leone)  in partnership with the Fourah Bay College Alumni Association to jointly raise £15k to:

  1. set-up a video-conference facility at a suitable venue at Fourah Bay College for students and staff to access video conferencing.
  2. continue the programme from 2017 to purchase of laboratory equipment for the Mechanical Engineering department at the University and the Freetown Technical Institute (we raised £6k in 2017 towards this).

The charities will use a small percentage of the funds raised to cover their administrative costs.

Places are limited to a maximum of 50 people so please register promptly.

This year we have the option of starting the walk from Vauxhall Bridge/ London Underground Station at 12noon.

Nobody will be left behind on the walk as you will be walking in groups, with refreshment stops on route and a well deserved a pub dinner at the finish line.
