Fundraising Walk Along the Thames
for local Palestine Action
Saturday 12 August
Start at the Thames Barrier (about 11 miles)
or Greenwich (about 6 miles)
Ending at Tower Bridge
We will be walking along the Thames
from East to West to raise money to support the activities of local and other
Palestine Action activists.
We plan to end on Tower Bridge.
If you are interested in taking part,
please email email@example.com
for full details of meeting places, mobile numbers etc.
The longer walk (roughly 11 miles)
will start from the Thames Barrier at 10 am.
We will meet outside the View Café
from 9.30 am, which won't be open at that time, but there are external toilets
We will stop for lunch near the Cutty Sark/foot tunnel entrance in Greenwich at around 12
noon, where we will be joined by those who prefer to do the shorter walk
(roughly 6 miles), heading off around 12.30.
We will be raising funds for Palestine
Action, with priority to supporting local Palestine Action activists in south
Because PA is not a charity, we have
to use crowdfunding. Go to the main
fundraising page where you can click on Start Fundraising
then have the option of either making a one-off donation or clicking on Create
Your Fundraiser, from where you can create your own page for the walk. You won’t need to set up any bank
details, because all funds will go to the “parent” project that is already set
up. There is general advice about fundraising here.
These bus routes all run along the
road nearest to the Thames Barrier
Greenwich, Mottingham, Chislehurst
New Cross, Woolwich, Thamesmead
North Greenwich, Woolwich, Abbey Wood, Belvedere
Greenwich, Woolwich, Thamesmead
Routes 486 and 380 also pass nearby,
and the nearest station is Charlton (SouthEastern).
about cut the 180, leaving no link to Lewisham and now duplicating two other routes
to North Greenwich. You can get the 129 from Lewisham and change in Greenwich
or North Greenwich.
Get off at Royal Greenwich University
Technical College, and walk along the path to the left of the college entrance.
Keep following the path, until you
reach the ridge by the river.
Go up the steps on the ridge, and turn
right towards the café.
The café will not be
open at the time that
we will be there, unfortunately, but there are external toilets nearby that will be open.
The short start (joining the others as
they stop for lunch at about 1200) is near the Cutty
Sark in Greenwich. There are many bus
routes and Cutty Sark DLR station is nearby.
Walk towards the foot tunnel entrance,
by the side of the Cutty Sark, where there are plenty
of places to sit.
As for footwear, the route is all flat
and on footpaths, so if you wear sensible shoes that you are used to, it is
very unlikely that you will get blisters.
You can go to the main
fundraising page and make a one-off donation if you don’t want to set up
your own fundraising page.
