Sponsored walk for Saints and others Saturday 26TH May

Recommended Posts

A date for your diaries just now, Saturday 26th May.

Our next big Barossa St fund raiser for saints youth development is a sponsored walk on the 26th of May. For this one we are also doing a bit for charity. 50% of the monies raised will go to our youth development fund,25% to Erskine.org.uk and 25% to Perth Abandoned Dogs Society.

Erskine is the charity that each year cares for 1,400 ex-service and serving men and women of all ages.

There will be 2 walks on the day.

For those that fancy a bit of a challenge 1 walk will set off from the garage at the Dundee end of the dual carriageway just before the swallow roundabout and walk back along the cycle path to Barossa St.

The second walk will leave from Barossa ST and walk around the North Inch,as many times as you want. It is 1.5 miles per lap of the inch.

Both walks will be timed so that they finish roughly at the same time.

Then its back to Barossa St for some nibbles and a few beers.

The walk from Dundee will take between 6 and 7 hours possibly longer depending upon ability.

This event is still in the early days of planning. We have a first aider for both walks and a support vehicle for those walking from Dundee.

The sponsorship forms are being produced and we will let you know when they are available and how you can get one. If you want to send me or any of the committee your email address by PM we will make sure you get a form.

This is a great way to help us raise monies for saints and 2 very worthwhile charities.

We are currently in discussion with saints about supporting the 4 youth teams by utilising some of the funds we have already raised, more on that to follow in due course.

The sponsored walks are open to everyone, we would like to see as many taking part as possible, we would hope that all our WeArePerth Barossa St members will take part and many many more as this is a great opportunity to help the club and 2 fantastic charities.

If you cant make it on the day but would like to be involved then please get involved with sponsoring one of the walkers.

I have my name down for the walk back from Dundee, we are looking for as many as possible to get involved so please let us know if you want to take part.

Further details to follow as things develope.

Thats 10 booked up for the Dundee leg of this already and we have hardly started.

For the Dundee walk Ghostie is looking into the cost of a bus to take us from Barossa St to the starting point which will make things easier than running cars down to Dundee.

Good progress this week. We have booked a bus to leave Barossa St at 8.15 on the Saturday morning with a view to starting the Dundee leg of the walk at9am.

Ghostie has managed to secure a Perth Executive Travel 34 seater free of charge as this is a fund raiser. Perth Executive Travel are also providing a bottle of water for each person on the bus.

Well done Ghostie and thanks to Perth Executive Travel for laying on the bus.

I'm in Gus.

Well done Doc,thats 12 confirmed already for the Dundee leg.

The North Inch walk will meet at Barossa St from 2.30 and commence at 3pm.

It is 1.5 miles around the North Inch. At a decent pace it takes between 25 and 30 minutes to go around once. If antone is pushing a pram or walking with young children it will take longer to get around.

You can do as few or as many laps as you want,it is up to each walker to decide how many they want to do.

You can of course start earlier if you want to do more laps.

We will aim to have both walks finished by 5pm.

More info.to follow in due course..
