Stan Walk Flyer

A personal note from Stan

Now that I am retired I have taken up several charitable appointments and currently I am helping raise funds for two of these. I chair the SW Notts Scouts Executive Committee which is raising funds to help Scouts attend the International Scout Jamboree that will be held in the USA in 2019. I am also the lay-chair of the St Michael and All Angels (Bramcote Parish Church) Parochial Church Council which is raising funds for a number of commitments, repairs and projects that will benefit the church and the local community. I would really love it if you could help me support both of these causes.

On 26 August I will walk with my dog Charlie from my home in Bramcote to Langley Mill and back. We will use part of the Erewash Valley Trail along the Nottingham Canal Nature Reserve. After we return (hopefully at around 4pm) I will be hosting a barbecue at my home.

Would you please consider sponsoring me and Charlie  for the walk, and/or come to the barbecue and make a donation towards these two worthy causes? I would be very grateful indeed. All donations that are made out to Stan Heptinstall will be put in a special account and then the whole will be split 50/50 between the two charities. Alternatively you can donate directly to either ‘SW Notts Scouts’ or ‘Bramcote PCC’ if that is your wish.

Thank you
