Jack’s Sponsored Walk 2016
In aid of the Petworth British Legion Poppy Appeal
Once again, the walk is being organised by John Rosser, who has done so since it was initiated by Jack Holloway – a Burma Star veteran – in 1998, to raise funds for the Petworth Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. It will take place this year on Saturday, 1 October, meeting at 9.30am at The Noah’s Ark Inn at Lurgashall (GU28 9ET).
We aim to assemble from 9.30am for a 10am start. All ages and dogs are welcome. The going should not be too difficult and we want it to be fun. We were joined by a number of new faces last year and hope this will be the case this time. We will return to The Noah’s Ark Inn at the end of the walk in time for lunch and hope you will stay for this. As usual, John Rosser will be collecting orders before we set out.
We hope that you will be able to obtain sponsorship for the walk and I enclose a sponsorship form which you can either return to me or give to Ian McNeil on the day of the walk. We raised more than £3,300 last year and hope to match that this year.
For those who prefer to do things on-line, I have set up a JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jacks-Sponsored-Walk to make it easy to make or collect donations and to register for gift aid (where appropriate).
