Each year we nominate a Charity to support and raise money during our Annual Tour. This is co-ordinated by our Captain and Fine Master. Peter Meadowcroft is presently our Fine Master and has done a sterling job since 2007. Thanks must also go to Mark Steele, Stan Malpass and Joe Matthews for their support over more recent years.
In 2007 we raised ₤51.00 for Breast Cancer Care. In 2008 we raised ₤90.00 for Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund. In 2009 we donated ₤59.50 towards a Special Treatment Chair at the local hospital in North Staffordshire in memory of Jo Eastwood a friend of Society Member Graham Cooke.
In 2012 during our Annual Tour which took us to Anglesey, Stan Malpass organised a draw and raised the sum of £130 which we agreed to give to Karl Furniss in memory of his father Peter who passed away in 2011. Karl has given the money to the Christie Charitable Fund to support cancer research.
In October 2014 we donated £163 to the North Staffs Kidney Patients Association in support of one of our Society Members Mark Steele.
In September 2015 we donated £208 to Cancer Research UK, the nominated Charity of our Captain Steve Rushton.
In 2016 we made a further donation of £60 to our local Hospice the Douglas Macmillan in Barlaston.
Thank you to all that have supported us.
