ROBIN MOORE’S CHARITY WALK AND PRESENTATION
The cheque displayed at The Rose & Crown, Oundle represents the amount raised from Robin’s recent European Expedition in September. Funds raised from the walk were divided between hospice care and cancer research. The representative for Cancer Research UK, Annette Beeton from Burghley Park and Peterborough Ladies Committee received £550 towards equipment for the Oncology Unit, Peterborough Hospital (part of Cambridge Research Institute which is the largest in Europe).
Before setting of to Nantes, Robin neighbour Anna Fernyhough who founded the ‘Little Ducklings Pre-School at Barnwell, held a garden party which raised £130 towards the presentation. Robin has always been supported by the Rose & Crown where patrons have been generous; we were also able to add a couple of donations made to Robin by Barmy Army supporters earlier this year when Robin walked the West Coast of New Zealand for the Cancer Society.
‘We did in fact raise £835 for Cornwall Hospice Care thanks to kind-hearted locals who walked part of Robin Moore’s Cornwall Pilgrimage over August Bank Holiday.’ And when the final count is added from the donation envelopes Robin delivered for the charity at the time it is hoped the amount will exceed £1000. The support from the Coppice Inn and Lanner Rugby Club in Cornwall made a tremendous difference to our fundraising this year; The Coppice supported Robin’s walk by hosting a harvest auction to help him raise the money for his effort which was donated to St Julia’s Hospice at the end of October.
