During my year in office I will be raising money for:
The Community Foundation for Staffordshire
This encompasses the High Sheriff Fund which was started by Lord Stafford in 2008 and which has since been supported by others in this role. The fund awards grants of up to £2000 to small community and voluntary groups in Staffordshire where they have a specific need and where their income is less than £30,000 per annum.
and Local Community First Responder teams
The main charity events are three quizzes with a bias towards questions on Staffordshire. These will be held around the County – in Barlaston on Friday 21st September, Admaston on Friday 5th October and Ashley on Friday 19th October. More information can be found here Quiz Flyer A4 and an application form here Quiz Application Form.
I am grateful to the following for supporting the quizzes:
Moorland Pottery Nelsons Gin Burton Albion FC Staffordshire Police Dunoon Mugs Lymestone Brewery Premier Store, Barlaston Slaters Ales Stoke City FC One Stop, Barlaston Stone Holistics and Beauty il Gusto Whittard Chelsea
I am also supporting YMCA Burton by signing up to Sleep Out at the Burton Albion Stadium on Friday 9th November. More info at https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/TheHighSheriffsPosse . My Posse and I are very grateful for any support.
