  • Rich Straker

    At the start of the year I wanted to challenge myself and get fitter! I decided to do the Hackney Half as well as raise some money for London Youth. Thank you all so much, #TeamLondonYouth will get me across that finish line!

  • Kieran Tyler

    What an amazing day! A little sore this morning, but the sense of achievement should long outlive any of the pain. Thanks to everyone for their incredible support and messages – and to London Youth for giving me this fantastic opportunity, and their support at Mile 25!

  • Weston Turville

    The instructors are reliable, skilled and clearly well managed. They know what is supposed to be happening, they lead activities well and they are endlessly patient with queries from staff and children. The food is excellent and the catering staff efficient, friendly and humorous, and although we didn’t meet the housekeeping staff we found the house and facilities clean and well looked after.

    The staff are clearly a team and they couldn’t do enough for us.

  • Portfield’s Primary

    I would like to extend my thanks to everyone at Woodrow who made Josh’s time an amazing and positive experience. I would like to say a big thank you to Liam, he made Joshua’s stay lots of fun and helped out when we needed him. He made it possible for Josh (who is in a wheelchair) to do the Low Ropes and I cannot put into words how this made me feel that they did this for Josh! – Mum

  • Unique Swagga

    From point of contact those who supported with the administration of planning our visit were patient, prompt with replying, flexible with the numerous changes/requests we made and of course polite and professional.

    On arrival we found the team who dealt with our all girl group, some of which who have never camped before just as fantastic as their colleagues.  Woodrow is equally beautiful, clean and suitably equipped for our activity and camping needs. I found the team to be welcoming, well trained, polite and patient.
