Our Splash Coordinator Dawn and a team of cyclists will be cycling from London to Paris in September to raise funds for Splash.  The group will be leaving from Big Ben on Friday 15th Sept aiming to arrive at the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Sunday 17th Sept.  This is an epic challenge to take on and the group will be doing it to raise funds which will go towards the October and December Splash school holiday activity programmes.  If you would like to support the team and Splash please use the link below, all donations and support are much appreciated:

All letters for the Splash Summer Programme have been posted.  If you have not received a letter for a particular activity don't worry you have been added to the waiting list.  If any cancellations are received we will work our way through the relevant waiting lists and call you.


Please remember to dress appropriately for the activity that you are attending.

During the summer holidays please wear sun tan lotion even if it is cloudy when you leave home as the sun may come out later in the day.  If you are attending a session in woodlands please wear or bring with you long trousers and long sleeves.  This is because Ticks live in the woods and are dangerous if they latch on to you.  A sunhat and sunglasses can also be a good idea, as is a waterproof coat if it is raining.

Please always bring plenty to drink with you and check your confirmation letter to see if you are required to bring a packed lunch or not.

If you need to take medication whilst you are out with Splash please ensure you bring a completed medication consent form with you, along with the medication in its original packaging.  This is extremely important in case we should need to seek medical advice – we can ensure we have all the information available to us.

Here's to an amazing, fun Summer for everyone!
