The Hollow Lane Club news update April 2018


Charity Walk

Four members of staff from Sainsburys (Pinhoe) are doing a 24 hr sponsored walk from Croyde Bay to Exmouth Octagon to raise money for the store charity which is The Hollow Lane Club.

They will start on 5 May 2019 at 12pm from Croyde Bay and make their way across Devon to Exmouth arriving by 12pm on 6 May 2019.  This challenge is a total of 58 miles walked non stop.

Quiz & Curry Night

Sainsburys (Pinhoe) are going to hold a quiz and curry night with all proceeds raised being donated to The Hollow Lane Club.

It will take place on Tuesday 12 March at 7.30pm in the café of the Pinhoe store.  Teams are a group of 6 and you can sign up as a team or an individual.  The cost is £2.50 per person to include the quiz and curry.

If you’d like to sign up please contact Deb on 01392 463823, admin@hollowlane.org.uk or via our Facebook page.

Trustees Needed

The Hollow Lane Club is dependant upon having a board of Trustees to operate.  We are keen to appoint more Trustees and, in particular, someone with an accountancy background who could be our Treasurer.

Please contact us via 01392463863 or email admin@hollowlane.org.uk if you are interested in these worthwhile roles.  Please pass on to friends and family who may be interested.

Good news – we have been chosen to be Sainsbury’s Charity of the Year for the Pinhoe Road store.  There will be fundraising and other events that we can all get involved with.  Watch this space!

 

Pebble Painting

Last week at after school club, the Wednesday group spent some of the evening decorating pebbles.  These pebbles will be placed around Exeter for members of the public to find and re-hide.  We have asked that people send us a picture on Facebook when they find them so that we can see where they ended up.
