Story

On 23rd March, members of Leeds University Society of Change Ringers ran Woodhouse Moor ParkRun to raise money for ROGER and ABBEY, two of the 10 new bells installed in April 2019 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 on this page 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. By donating here, you will be helping to raise funds for both our bells and for Hollybank. If you prefer to donate just to the bells (which are still some £5000 short of their funding target), then please use our main page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/vernetbells. Thank you for supporting us!
