A day out with some Lions

On Saturday 26th September Hazel left Portland Basin towed by Forgetmenot and travelled up to Marple. On board were some of her sponsors, Colin Scrivener – our newsletter editor – with his friend Angel Monroe plus three Lions ( no rendition of any song will be made here !) The latter were actually John Perkins, Terry Harding and George Tavener from Romiley and Marple district Lions club who are long standing sponsors of Hazel.

On arrival at Marple, where Hazel stayed the night before a return trip on the Sunday, the Lions made a presentation of their annual sponsorship cheque to Chris Leah and the Hazel team.Lions present their 2015 sponsor chq.Anne Louise Black, Hazel Project Manager, Nick Lowther and Dave Wilson, WCBS trustees. Lurking behind is Nigel Carpenter, a trainee crew member.

Without support from such as these, the funding for Hazel would not have had such a good start before our Lottery Grant. Going forward sponsorship is vital as many of our potential clients may not have money or funding to support their much needed trips on Hazel.

PLEASE DO CONSIDER BECOMING A SPONSOR – or, at this time of year, think of it as a present for ”the person who has everything”. Just complete this form  Hazelsponsorform  giving your preferred date and post to the address given with your cheque. If you wish to pay electronically please contact us at general@wcbs.org.uk

Many thanks.
