Support from Sandbach Striders

Earlier this year, we were contacted by Cheryl Hutchins, Chair of the Sandbach Striders running club for adults, who had some marvellous news for us.

Every year, the club holds a 10K run, with a family fun day, where they raise a considerable amount of money for charity. With the encouragement of one of their members, this year, they chose Friends for Leisure to receive the proceeds, along with other money raised at events during the year.

A team of staff and trustees went along on the day, with a fundraising stall, at which we raised £133 and had a lot of fun.

Gillian and Sue were invited to one of the club meetings at Elworth Cricket Club, where they were given a cheque for £1200 by Cheryl, a wonderful donation from the club, for which we send our grateful thanks.
