Our Objective

On Monday 26th July, we will be launching our campaign at St Georges Cricket Ground. This Cricket match will consist of a 100 ball friendly made up of 2 team of all abilities (male and female). One team will be the Pirates and the other team will be made up from BBC Radio Shropshire. 

The launch will also be attended by Lucy Allan (MP), the Mayor of Telford, the Deputy Leader of the Council (and possibly the Leader Sean Davies), there will also be stalls attended by MacMillan Cancer Care; Lingen Davies Cancer Care; Royal British Legion, Quantum Wheelchairs, and others as the list grows. There will also be media attention from BBC Radio Shropshire, The Shropshire Star and others. 

As contributors to the launch of this campaign John and I would be most pleased if you would come along and join us on this ‘fun’ evening, and allow us to express our thanks formally to you for all your efforts in helping us. If any members of your family would be interested in accompanying you they would be most welcome too. Please contact us by:admin@sopw.org
