Winchester Walk For The Homeless 2012
“This is our first year hosting this Winchester Walk for the Homeless in partnership with the nightshelter and we’re hoping that the people of Winchester will join forces, get their walking shoes on and help us support homeless and vulnerable people who have fallen on hard times. With the participation of local residents, we’re hoping that this will become an annual event in the city’s calendar and go from strength to strength in years to come.”
Frank and Anne Pearson, the mayor and mayoress, launched the walks, one of five and the other of twelve miles, both leaving from Abbey Gardens at 9:30 am. Marshalls were stationed along the routes to encourage walkers and distribute water and other items. The walk was followed by congregating at Abbey Gardens for cake, a tombola and a bar from The Willow Tree Pub serving much needed refreshments!
The sponsorship money raised (the total is currently being calculated) will help support nearly 800 people in Winchester on their journey towards a roof over their head, employment and greater independence.
A big thank you to all who took part, volunteered on the day or sponsered the walkers!
Annual Golf Day
On Saturday 20th June, Trinity Winchester was delighted to hold its annual Golf Day at the prestigious Royal Winchester Golf Club, established in 1888, to raise much needed funds for its work in the community of Winchester.
Luckily, the weather was bright and sunny and the event was well attended by teams from local and not so local businesses! The event was a great success and generated over £4,000 for our work with homeless and vulnerably housed people this year.
Trinity would like to offer its special thanks to Phil Wilding, of Wilding and Butler Construction, for organising the whole day and providing fantastic team prizes, as well as Kyoto Kitchen in Winchester, for providing a free meal for two as a wonderful raffle prize.
100 Mile Cycle Challenge for Trinity
Over the May 2012 Bank Holiday Simon Jenvey of Zurich Financial Services and team mates cycled an incredible 100 miles along the south coast from Winchester to Eastbourne to raise vital funds for Trinity’s work with homeless and vulnerably housed people in Winchester.
Despite the wet and slippery conditions, Team Jenvey managed to cover an impressive grand total of 102 miles, clocking up 6 punctures, 1 snapped peddle and lots of very weary limbs!
Through sponsorship and generous company support from Zurich, the event will have raised over £2,000 for Trinity Winchester and we would all like to offer our hearty thanks to for such a wonderful boost to our funds!
