Dartford Fostering team’s Foster Walk

19-169x300Marcella, Fiona, Mary, Sarah and Tracey from Capstone Foster Care took part in the Fostering Network’s Foster Walk. The walk brought together fostering families for a great day out, raising funds to continue life-changing work transforming fostered children’s lives.

Joining the Fostering Network team, the Capstone ladies dressed in orange, drawing in lots of attention from passers by who asked what the walk was in aid of.

Marcella Denis, Regional Director, said: “It was a lovely sunny day in London and It was really nice spending time with other people involved in fostering and hearing their stories and what their connection to fostering was.”

02The walk was along the south bank of the river Thames. It started at Potters Field Park, near Tower Bridge and ended by the London Eye. Fiona Persich, Recruitment Co-ordinator said: “During the walk we could see many of London’s well known sights and attractions including City Hall, the Gherkin tower,  HMS Belfast, London Bridge and the London Bridge experience, The Golden Hinde, The Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern, the Millennium Bridge, the Oxo Tower and the Houses of Parliament.”

The walk was organised by the Fostering Network to raise more awareness of fostering during Foster Care Fortnight. There is a huge shortage of foster carers in London and the surrounding areas. At Capstone Foster Care we support carers across the South East from offices in Dartford, Hounslow, Luton, Ashford and West Sussex.
