Support Romsey Family Support Group by Walking the Test Way and help raise vital funds.
Please come and join us and take part in Walk the Test Way to help raise funds for Romsey Family Support Group.
You can walk any distance from 5, 8, 11, 16 or 25.5 miles along the beautiful Test Way which is located in Hampshire.
Romsey Family Support Group is a unique charity, primarily for parents of pre-school children from birth to four years who may be experiencing a difficult time e.g. social isolation, post-natal depression, housing issues, domestic violence. Families from Romsey and the surrounding areas attend the Group which has been established for many years.
RFSG provides a stimulating and safe environment in which children can come and play and make new friends.
The Group which became a registered charity in September 2009 also provides the parents an opportunity to seek support through a listening ear or advice, friendship and a variety of courses including healthy eating on a budget.
All of this is free to the families we support; our only income comes from local charitable organisations, Church Groups, local Businesses and small donations from individuals. It costs approximately £10,000 a year to run the Group which includes core running costs e.g. transport, insurance and events throughout the year that the families we support might not normally be able to afford for themselves. Romsey Family Support Group endeavours to take part in numerous fundraising opportunities held in the local community to help raise awareness of the Group and Walk the Test Way is one of the highlights of the year.
