The most sponsored walkers from this year’s Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) Spring Walk have been thanked by the team at the centre in Bath Road.

The event, held on Saturday, May 14, has raised £8,000 for the playground for children and adults with special needs.
Nicky Hutchinson, fundraising manager for TVAP, said: “We’re absolutely chuffed to bits. The money is a crucial part of our running costs, and allows us to continue.”
