Following a very successful walk to the Shard with Zurich employees last year, Oak Lodge students would now like to embark on a more ambitious outing.  Your challenge is to take the students on a train to Hassocks and then walk along the South Downs Way to Lewes – an 11 mile walk in stunning countryside. The school said it would be a 'chance in a life time' for the students to see such a beautiful part of Britain and to stretch themselves physically. You will need to raise about £250 to cover the cost of the train tickets.

To run or walk in the ‘Footsteps of the Homeless’. This four mile route, starting and ending at the Soup Kitchen, will take participants past 8 day centres serving the homeless in central London (a journey that many of their clients do every day).  After the run/walk you are invited to have refreshments with the Soup Kitchen’s guests. The Soup Kitchen asks that you get sponsorship for your run/walk and if you fancy making it more challenging, you could carry a heavy rucksack, like many of their clients do.
