Jim, who had served on the management committee of the league for 43 years, was a keen supporter of the Heartbeat (the League’s adopted charity) and he was instrumental in raising a substantial amount for them in recent years.

Val and Keith’s John O Groats to Lands End

Val & Keith

UPDATE March 2018… Well Done Val !!

Val says “Cycled 1050 miles in total because we took the quiet roads, not the direct route. Most of the trip was completed in stages in November. We raised £800 pounds sponsorship from friends and supporters.

Thanks for all the support received.

£410 was raised by the ladies of Rossendale Golf Club in various events through the year. Total amount so far about £1200.  This includes £160 on the just giving page.

I did this in memory of a dear friend Peter Ashcroft.  My husband Keith cycled most of the way with me and gave lots of support.

Good luck to all in your anniversary year. It is a great cause.”

An absolutely fantastic achievement! Well done Val and Keith, and thank you both so much for your amazing support! We cannot thank you enough!!

Information

Val has been Lady Captain at Rossendale Golf Club and has supported Heartbeat during the year in memory of Peter Ashcroft.

The golf season finished at the end of October 2017, immediately after closing day, Val and Keith travelled up to John o Groats to get on their bikes and cycle to Land’s End.

Val said, ‘The challenge is very dependent on weather conditions so will be completed in three or four stages but we hope to complete the whole journey during November. We are travelling on quiet roads and tracks and the total distance will be about 1,500 km.

I am hoping to raise funds for a couple of charities and you can donate here to support Heartbeat. I will post updates on our progress as we go.’

Preston North End NCS Students Fundraise for Heartbeat!

pne ncs 5

Our Heroes!

Preston North End deliver the NCS (National Citizen Service) programme throughout the year for 15 to 17 year olds, who enjoy new experiences and unique challenges whilst making their mark building skills for work and life.

After choosing Heartbeat for their fundraising experience they had a tour of our premises and learned about how Heartbeat help, support and care for over 800 people in the North West every week; these amazing students organised a fundraising day at Sainsbury’s at Deepdale.

Filled with enthusiasm, they donned their onesies, tu-tus and facepaint and spent the day bag packing and bucket collecting.

These amazing young people even came into Heartbeat HQ and counted the money. They saw the fundraising project from the beginning to end and raised a staggering £843 in cash, a £100 cheque sponsorship and an on-going Just Giving page.

Please click here to donate to Heartbeat and to also support what these brilliant young people have achieved!

 

Morecambe Bay Walk – 2nd SEPTEMBER CANCELLED!!!

Morecambe Bay Walk

CANCELLED!!!

We are sorry to report that the Morecambe Bay Walk had to been cancelled again this weekend.

Cedric, the official guide, informed us that there was no safe route across the bay, due to quick sand.

Whilst there are other walks scheduled before the end of the season, because of the bad weather we have experienced this summer we do not feel that the situation will alter, and in all likelihood, any future walks may be cancelled too.

Regrettably, we have taken the decision to leave it for this year and we will hopefully organise another walk for summer 2018.

Many thanks for your understanding and also to all of you who have very kindly donated your walk entry fee as a donation for Heartbeat.

Thank you for your support.

If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact the Fundraising Team on 01772 717147 or info@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk
