Help us raise much needed funds to support emotional wellbeing in our school!

Join the Thames Path Challenge  – 9th/10th September 2023

The Schools Counselling Partnership (SCP) are looking for people to join a team for this year’s Thames Path Challenge 2023.

As I am sure you are aware the pressure on mental health services is huge with waiting lists for CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) reaching 18-24 months and adult mental health services equally stretched. 

The Schools Counselling Partnership offers therapeutic support for our whole school community – children, young people, parents, carers and teaching staff.  They work in our school along with 45 other schools across London, predominantly in Ealing and Harrow.

With rising costs and no real terms increase in school budgets some very difficult decisions are having to be made about what we pay for and this may jeopardise future service provision.  Schools Counselling Partnership are trying to raise fund to ensure this much needed provision remains in our school.  

Evidence shows that exercise, connection to others and giving back hugely improves your overall wellbeing and combats anxiety and stress.  Participating in an event like the Thames Path Challenge ticks many of these boxes.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September starting at Fulham Palace you can choose to walk, jog or run 25km (to Hampton Court), 50km to Runnymede or the full 100km to Henley.  

Why not set yourself a challenge and take part!

In return for your participation and fundraising efforts on their behalf SCP will pay your registration fees which include refreshments throughout the day, your t-shirts/bib for the day.    

If you would like to join them please contact Toni Medcalf, Schools Counselling Partnership,   Full details for the event can be found at Thames Path Challenge – Ultra Challenge
