David Howells completes 20th London Marathon

David Howells at London Marathon 2016David completed his 20th London Marathon on 24 April 2016, in a time of 3:40:31 which apparently gives him a ‘good for age time’!

He would like to thank everyone who sponsored him, and if you haven’t yet you can still do so by visiting his ‘just giving’ webpage at: https://www.justgiving.com/David-Howells10, where you can also read his ‘post run’ report.

 

David Howells ‘on the run’ again

David Howells [our former Director of Corporate Services] will running his 20th London Marathon on 24 April 2016. He is taking the opportunity to once again raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

David’s eldest daughter, Amanda, (now 38) was diagnosed with MS when she was just 19 – and that is why David chooses to raise money for the charity. You can sponsor him by visiting his fundraising page at: www.justgiving.com/David-Howells10

The site usually remains active for a couple of months after the marathon to receive donations, so do please support him.

Beautiful, The Carole King Musical – April 2016

“CAROLE KING, the chart-topping music legend, was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.

She fought her way into the record industry as a teenager and sold her first hit, ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’, when she was just seventeen. By the time she was twenty she was writing number ones for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, including the Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and the Monkees. But her greatest challenge was to find her own voice and finally step into the spotlight.” (Copyright: Beautiful Musical).

This trip will take place in April, as soon as we have confirmed the date and price, we will publish it on our website.

Alton Treasure Hunt – 24 July 2016

Last year’s treasure hunt took us around historic Southampton.

This year’s clues will take you to all parts of the market town of Alton, testing your ingenuity and rewarding you with surprises that you may never have guessed were there.

Starting from Manor Car Park in Draymans Way at 1030 am, the clues will lead you through an exploration of Alton that includes plenty of potential coffee/tea stops, before terminating in one of the town’s hostelries where you can partake of lunch or a snack before heading back to your car.

There’s no charge for this event (just pay for your own refreshments and parking), however, we do need a few details so that we can get enough clue sheets distributed, so please fill in and return the form below if you want to come along:
