News - 17/06/13 - Thank You Everybody
A message from PPW Grahame (master-chief), and PPW Paul (admin-monkey/webmaster)...
First of all, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved with Pendle Pub Walk 2013.
The pubs, the pub staff, the Rotary guys, the volunteers, the walkers, the weather - everything was just great, and everyone seemed to have a marvellous time. We can't thank you all enough - a special thank you to Christina from Pendleside Hospice, Mick from Worsthorne Brewing Company for the beer, and Neil at The Sparrowhawk - many other people deserve special thanks too, but there's just too many of you - sorry.
The route was spectacular this year, and wasn't that 12 miles easy? But now comes the hard bit - and the most important bit. Collecting sponsorship! All sponsorship monies are to be given directly to Pendleside Hospice - with your sponsor sheets...
Pendleside Hospice, Reedley Rd, Reedley BB10 2LW
Cheques payable to "Pendleside Hospice", and please write your walker number on the back. DO NOT SEND ANY CASH THROUGH THE POST! If you have your sponsorship in cash, call in to see them.
Even though by limiting the numbers this year so we had less walkers, the pledges we received on the morning indicate that we should raise just as much funds as we did last year. Over £20,000! An amazing result, especially in these tough economic times. And that is just from walker's sponsorship pledges. There's another £5000 from donations, registration fees, etc. So we should have raised over £25,000 for charity again this year! An amazing achievement, but all the numbers will be crunched as we get all the sponsorship in.
We have a million good photos that will be uploaded soon, and if you have some good photos you'd like to share too, upload them to our Facebook page or just tag us please.
After such a great event this year, we're looking forward to PPW 2014 already. If you're reading this and you wasn't involved with PPW 2013, you can use the button towards the top of this page to get involved with PPW 2014. And of course... check back here for the details in due course.
