WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
Swan Lifeline is the oldest registered charity devoted entirely to the care of sick and injured swans in the Thames Valley and surrounding area. Originally known as Save Our Swans (SOS), it was founded in 1984 by a small group that had already long been involved with swan rescue and treatment. To read more please see our About Us page. This website offers an insight into who we are, what we do and how you can help, but more importantly it raises public awareness of the man-made problems facing our beautiful swans. We aim to update this website regularly, so please keep coming back to check on the latest Press Relseases and up-and-coming Events. Swans are protected birds under the Act For Swans 1576.
SWAN UPPING 2014
We have once again chartered the New Orleans from Hobbs of Henley for a four hour cruise along the River Thames around Henley. We are hopeful of seeing part of the ancient tradition of Swan Upping but cannot guarantee this as time, weather and the swans themselves cannot be relied on. What we do know is that the boat, the lunch, the views and the company are all great.
16th July 2014
Tickets £45 per head including lunch (vegetarian option if required), non-refundable unless they can be re-sold. Cash bar available. We anticipate leaving Hobbs at 11.30am but details will be confirmed nearer the date.
