This year’s HSWL Fun Run will take place on Sunday 28 September. All welcome!

The run will start at the Bricklayer’s Arms in Putney (SW15 1DD), with registration by 9.30am. We will run or walk our way to Hammersmith Bridge and back (about 4 miles). It’s £5 to enter (on the day) and all proceeds go to HSWL.

All back to the Bricklayer’s Arms afterwards for a free pint, sandwich and sausage roll. All finishers get a certificate, too!

All enquiries to Becky Newman on 020 8789 0222 or becky@bricklayers-arms.co.uk.

There will also be a HSWL social event on Saturday 13 September at Wimbledon Odeon. The plan is to attend a matinee showing.  Tickets will be purchased for members and if a support worker or carer is coming with them they will go free. For now, pencil in 13 September and look out for more information on our Facebook page.
