Time: All Day

Hold a Silly Socks fundraiser on our Silly Socks Day, 26th June 2023, or on any day of the year that needs a little more colour!

Encourage everyone at your school to wear their most silly or colourful socks for a suggested £1 donation per foot and raise funds this year to support the work of Slide Away.



Time: All Day

Walk and trek across the capital taking in unrivalled views of the skyline and historic landmarks whilst raising funds for Slide Away. Set out from the Putney Bridge start and head East towards the City, zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges–each with its own fascinating story–with a rest stop near Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, before reaching the spectacular Tower Bridge and completing your challenge at Southwark Park. It’s a party style finish line and is great way to enjoy a weekend in London.
