Seven Firefighters Walking The Trail in Six Days

24th May 2018

From Sunday  27th May  a crew of Firefighters from Oxfordshire are planning to walk the whole Thames Path in 6 days, starting from the Source of the Thames in the Parish of Coates Gloucestershire and finishing at the Thames Barrier Greenwich on Friday 1st June. 186 miles in 6 days!

Underpinning their challenge is the commitment to raise both funds and awareness for their 2 chosen charities - The Firefighters Charity and See Saw - Grief Support for Children and Young Adults in Oxfordshire. Every pound raised will make a difference and is a worthwhile reason for going that extra mile! As the crew trek along the trail they will be joined by others clubs and groups  to help them on, so if your walking the trail next week look out for them and please do offer your support.

The Fire Fighters Charity supports Firefighters and their families in their time of need. Over the years, the Charity has helped hundreds of thousands of individuals by providing world-class treatment and support services. To find out more please visit

SeeSaw was founded in 2000 when it was recognised that children as well as adults grieve the loss of a loved one and could benefit from specialist support. SeeSaw provides that support for individuals when a parent or sibling has died. They pioneered the recruitment and training of a team of support workers to provide one-to-one sessions with children and young people in their own home and out of school time.
