Supporters Visit Charity ahead of Sponsored Walk
By Slough Town Supporters Trust, Apr 5 2016 03:33PM
On Tuesday 5th April, a small group of Slough supporters visited the charity at the centre of our upcoming Sponsored Walk on Saturday 16th April.
Sebastian's Action Trust, born out of the wish of a nine year old who suffered from a rare form of cancer, has a Family Outreach Hub based on the edge of the Slough Trading Estate, where families of seriously ill children can come for advice, support, counselling, play time, craft activities and regular events for families, children and parents. This centre is open for families to drop in whenever they feel the need, and the charity offers a range of events that cover children of all ages and their families across the year.
Kay Lathey, Dan Brench, Ollie Hayward and Mike Pearcy went to visit the Hub as part of the publicity for this year's Historical Sponsored Walk, which marks the final home game for Slough Town at Beaconsfield. They were given the chance to speak to some of the children and parents who attend the Hub, as well as the amazing staff that work there.
You can find out more information about the charity and what they do by visiting their website at www.sebastiansactiontrust.org
This year's sponsored walk will take in several locations in the history of the Club. Details can be found by going to our Events page. It is not too late to join the walk, which starts at Windsor FC at 8am with a second start point at 10am at Wexham Park. You can also sponsor our walkers (listed on a previous news post) in person or by donating online using the PayPal button on our Events page. Money will be split between STST and Sebastian's Action Trust.
Further promotion material will be released soon. We would like to thank the staff at Sebastian's Action Trust and the families who attended the session for allowing us to visit.
