Chairman clocking up the miles for Charity
18th April 2015
Starting in Croxley Green and ending in Abbots Langley, the Three Rivers District Council Chairman, Chris Lloyd, will be walking 25-30 miles on Monday 18th May 2015, to raise money for Watford Mencap, Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre and Three Rivers Citizens Advice Bureau.
Councillor Lloyd’s charity walk will see him starting in Croxley Green, and then following a route from Oxhey Hall, to Carpenders Park, South Oxhey, Eastbury, Moor Park, Rickmansworth, Mill End, Chorleywood, Sarratt, Abbots Langley, Leavesden and returning back to Croxley Green.
Walking across all 13 district wards, the Chairman is fundraising for his three chosen charities, including Watford Mencap, a charity for people with learning disabilities and their parents and carers. The Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre, based at the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre in Northwood, provides support and information for people affected by cancer. The final charity, the Chairman will be raising money for is the Citizens Advice Service in Three Rivers providing free, confidential, independent and impartial information and advice to all residents of Three Rivers.
Three Rivers District Council Chairman, Chris Lloyd said “The money raised will be split equally between these three brilliant local chosen charities. I have visited these charities several times during the year, and cannot applaud them enough for their excellent work for residents. All charities help support families and individuals, whether it is for a child with learning disabilities, a cancer patient or a resident in need of advice and safety net. Any donations to me or the organisations are deeply appreciated and I know they will benefit greatly from financial support. All 3 charities would also like anyone who would like to volunteer with them to contact them directly”
