The best way to keep up to date with Boston United Football Club


Strudwick's Stroll set to take place

6 years ago By Craig Singleton

Leading Football Conference officials are taking part in a fundraising event ahead of the AGM in June.

Prior to the Football Conference AGM in 2011, director Andy Shaw undertook a 15-mile canal walk to raise money for Level Playing Field (previously known as the Disabled Supporters Association). His efforts were well rewarded by donations from various sources to the amount of £600.

Following on from that success, this year the next section of the canal walk around Newport, amounting to a distance of 16 miles, is to be conquered.

Leading the charge to raise funds not only again for Level Playing Field but also on this occasion the Haemophilia Society will be none other than Football Conference general manager Dennis Strudwick.

The walk will take place on Friday June 8.

Being a glutton for punishment, Andy Shaw will again don his walking boots to support Dennis and also roped in to make it a trio of walkers will be Blue Square's PR manager Alan Alger.

Anyone wishing to make a donation towards their combined efforts can send a cheque payable to the "Football Conference" for either of the chosen charities:

c/o Fraser Tooley
The Football Conference
Third Floor, 31-34 Wellington House
Waterloo Street
B2 5TJ

For those not identifying either charity, the donations received will be split 50/50.

Any member clubs or individuals attending the AGM at Celtic Manor, Newport on Saturday June 9 can make donations at the registration desk prior to entering the AGM or donations can be handed personally to any of the trio who will be present.

The Football Conference statement concluded: “Best wishes to all three and well done for giving something back to those less well off in our society.”
