Cordwainers Charities

The Master's charity for 2016/17 is the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Each year the Master Cordwainer chooses a charity which members fundraise for. We also support footwear education, the Royal Society for Blind Children, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, the Royal Free Hospital and almshouses.

Story

On Sunday 19th March 2017, We will be taking part in the Marsden March to raise money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, a Charity supported by The Worshipful Company Of Cordwainers of which,  Mary was made a Liveryman in 2016. No matter how hectic a lifestyle one should always find time to help those in greater need. Many people have been affected by cancer and even our own family and friends. If it wasn't for the funding, research,  great hospitals, nurses, doctors and fantastic care, many couldn't have got through it. Fundraising events bring people from all backgrounds together in common cause to do a good deed to help all those affected. Now that's inspiring.

Now we are definitely not the natural athletic types! This year we wanted to set ourselves a physical challenge and make those first crucial steps and what better way to start than for a good cause. So when the Marsden March came up, we decided it was time to take a step forward (or several!!!). Who knows if it goes well we maybe up for more challenges in the future...here's hoping!
      

The Marsden March is a 14 mile walk from the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea to the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton. Hopefully the sun will be shining for the walk, but if not every step we take will be a step closer to reaching that vital fundraising goal.

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises funds to support the vital, world-leading work of the Royal Marsden Hospital in diagnosing and treating cancer.

Thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for your love, support and generosity. It will definitely spur us on! xx
