Chairman back on the fundraising trail

Tandridge District Council’s Chairman, Councillor Jeremy Pursehouse, is beginning his second year of fundraising for his nominated charities with a sponsored walk from the south to the north of the district on Saturday 1 August.

The Chairman’s sponsored walk will start just north of East Grinstead at 9am and he will walk to Featherbed Lane, south of New Addington, where he estimates he’ll finish the 16 mile walk between 4-5pm.

As this year’s local elections didn’t take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Councillor Pursehouse will remain Chairman for another year, raising money for new charities, the scouts and dog rescue and sanctuary organisations.

Last year, the Chairman raised £9,322.46, which was shared between Blanchman’s Farm and Lingfield Local Nature Reserves, his chosen charities.

Councillor Pursehouse said: ‘I supported environmental charities last year and wanted to do something different this year, so I’ve chosen to support organisations helping young people and animals. I am particularly keen to support dog rescue and sanctuary organisations, as I suspect these organisations will need help as people struggle to look after pets they’ve bought during lockdown, once things return to normal.’

Anyone wishing to sponsor the Chairman can obtain sponsorship forms by e-mailing or by visiting the Chairman’s Go fund me page.
