Charity fundraising walk with a difference – across hot coals!

Although most of our fundraising is for our corporate charity, sometimes other causes stand out for different reasons…

Randall & Payne was formed in Stroud back in 1879 and the firm was based in Rodborough Court for the best part of 50 years. With our roots in Stroud, when Will Abbott was asked by Andy Jarrett if he would consider sponsoring a fire walk for three amazing Stroud based charities, he was pleased to oblige.

We are supporting the fire walk with sponsorship to cover the printing of banners and flyers for the event which is due to take place at the stunning Stonehouse Court Hotel on Friday 22 October, 6-8pm.

The organisers are seeking brave souls to challenge themselves whilst raising funds for the following three charities; Allsorts, The Door and The Nelson Trust.

Will said “We are excited to be involved with the fire walk helping to raise vital funds for these three fantastic charities. It will certainly be an event to be remembered by all who take part!”

Anyone who is willing pluck up the courage to take on what could be the shortest sponsored walk they will ever do is invited to do so. Why not challenge friends, family or colleagues to join you for what will be an exciting memorable evening. Fun with purpose! We now need to find out if anyone from the Randall & Payne team is willing to take part…

Registration is just £30. Participants, who must be aged 14+ are asked to raise £100 which can go to any of the charities or split equally between all three. To find out more and sign up visit the event Facebook page.
