Fund raising Cycle ride

 22nd October 2020
Veterans Chair Michael Oakes and C&W Regional chair Jayne Graham have decided to help raise funds for the Sainsbury Veterans Welfare Scheme (SVWS) and Grocery Aid charity where Jayne is a volunteer. With no reunions this year the SVWS lost out as there were no table collections and other charities have suffered without their usual fund raising sources being active. Mike and Jayne will be cycling between the Sainsbury's store at Ashbourne to the Sainsbury's Local at Buxton and back again which is a 48 mile round trip on 22nd September. If you would like to support them with a donation you can do so by the Just Giving website at:, click the purple button link at the top of the page, or by sending a cheque made payable to either "The Sainsbury Veterans Welfare Scheme" or "Grocery Aid" and send to Sainsbury's Veterans Association, PO Box 383, Leeds, LS26 1GH Read more
