Like a Bridge Over Troubled Water*
Our patron, The Right Reverend Karen Gorham, successfully completed this 24k walk across 16 iconic London bridges in September, raising £1260 for Routes to Roots. “As Bishop of Sherborne in Dorset with an area of oversight which covers Poole I am proud to be Patron of Routes to Roots – a fantastic homeless charity making a real difference to the lives of those who find themselves homeless.
“Over the course of the day we walked into London ending at Southwark Bridge. Each bridge crossing reminded us of the bridges which need to be crossed to bring dignity and hope to the homeless.”

* Simon & Garfunkel
…When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you (ooo)
I’ll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down…

In August 2014, two people walked on behalf of R2R in a sponsored 14km walk arranged by the Rotary Club of Poole Bay. Starting and finishing at The Fish Shambles on Poole Quay, the walk took in some of Poole’s most attractive scenery: the harbour side, Evening Hill and its beautiful viewpoint and the beaches before returning via Branksome Chine and pine covered areas back to Whitecliff Park and to Poole Quay. Following this event, the Rotary Club added another £650 to a donation of £1100 given to us earlier this year.
