Story

On 23rd March, these lovely people, all members of Leeds University Society of Change Ringers, will be running to raise money for ROGER and ABBEY, two of the 10 new bells at St George's Anglican Church, Vernet-les-Bains, in Southern France. ROGER is given in memory of Roger Green whilst ABBEY, given in memory of Catherine Ladd, takes her name from Abbey Runners, Catherine's running club in Leeds,  Catherine and Roger loved helping others. Roger was Head of French at St Mary's School, Menston and Catherine worked as a careers adviser in and around Mirfield, so we decided that half the funds raised by 'Abbey' will be donated to the Hollybank Trust. Based in Mirfield, the Trust offers education, activities and accommodation to around 100 adults and young people with special needs. 'Abbey' has the full support of Abbey Runners; you can help them by  a one-off gift, by organising and sponsoring a running and/or ringing event, or maybe by just donating a quid or two every time you do your weekly run, beat that PB or ring a quarter or a peal. Whatever you do, enjoy it, please tell us about it and don't forget to mention if you're an Abbey Runner! All the events and donations will be recorded on the ringing-room wall, inside the church at St George's. 'Abbey' was cast by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough on Thursday 13th December and all ten bells will be installed in time for Easter.
