Sponsored walk 2nd November

Posted on Wednesday, 19 October 2016 01:24PM

Jane Easterby, Warden of Shepherds Dene, is planning a sponsored walk to raise money to replace the beautiful William Morris style 'Oakleaf' carpet in Shepherds Dene. The current carpet is very worn and frayed and we hope to raise enough money to replace it with an exact copy. The walk is also to mark the 70th Anniversary of the opening of Shepherds Dene in the autumn of 1946. Jane will walk 70 times cross the Millennium Bridge at Newcastle-Gateshead quayside. The bridge links the two Church of England Dioceses of Newcastle and Durham, to which Shepherds Dene belongs.

The walk will start at 10.30am from the Newcastle side of the bridge and Jane will be joined with two or three others, including new administrator, Jan Dumbell.

If you would like to join Jane or would like to sponsor her, a 'Just Giving' page has been set up in her name, which includes all details of the walk, along with the charity number for Shepherds Dene. If you would prefer to donate directly to Shepherds Dene, please send a cheque to the following address: Shepherds Dene retreat House, Riding Mill, Northumberland NE44 6AF. For a gift aid declaration, please contact us on 01434 682212 and we will send one throughto you.

Happy Birthday, Shepherds Dene!
