The entire Shiplake College cohort will be embarking on a 20 mile walk along the River Thames on Monday 19 September. As part of the Shiplake College Charity Walk, the pupils and staff will head off along the river from Moulsford in the morning, and aim to complete the walk, returning to Shiplake within six hours. Some pupils will aim to run the event, whilst others will take to the river and row or kayak the route.

With well over 450 pupils and staff taking part in the walk, we are hoping to raise a lot of money through sponsorship, to be able to support very worthy causes. The charities being supported are below.

Sue Ryder Hospice

The care offered by the Sue Ryder hospice provides great comfort not only to the patients but also to families and friends. Many members of the college and local community will have been touched by the support given by the Sue Ryder hospice and it seems fitting that we support them in return.
