Easter Monday – Charity collection
The Charity Walk on Good Friday was successfully completed by over 50 Harriers fans, Ned the dog and two very welcome walkers from AFC Telford United. When the final group arrived at the New Bucks Stadium some 15 hours after leaving Aggborough, utterly shattered and footsore, but welling with pride they had not only succeeded in completing the 35 miles trek up the Severn Valley, but had also raised thousands of pounds in sponsorship for this year’s chosen beneficiary Towards Tomorrow Together

Everyone involved in the Telford Walk has been delighted with the public response and, particularly with the vast sums, so far donated for this very caring, but desperately underfunded, local charity. ‘TTT’ will now be able to do so much more for parents and families suffering trauma after losing their babies in pregnancy, childbirth or early life. For anyone who may still be unaware, our efforts to raise much needed funding over Easter are in memory of Charlotte May Pountney who was born sleeping at full term back in June. Charlotte’s parents are avid Harriers supporters who have received, and are still receiving fantastic care and support from the charity.
That’s not the end of our efforts,
With the permission of the KHFC board, KHIST have arranged for a bucket collection to be taken during the Easter Monday, Harriers v’ Bristol Rovers match and, all money collected will be added to the proceeds from the Telford Walk and donated to the charity,
You can still sponsor the walkers online at www.justgiving.com/walktelford (where you can also find a detailed summary of the walk).
OR by texting KHFC50, and the amount, to 70070.
But, if you are a Harriers or Bristol Rovers fan, attending the match on Easter Monday, please be sure you do make your donation. However small or large, you will be making a big difference to a local charity that can, and will, make a big difference to people’s lives.
