Sponsor the Chair of the District to play Table Tennis!!

Roger Walton, Chair of the West Yorkshire Methodist District, is seeking sponsorship to raise money for the Touchstone Centre, Bradford. Touchstone is one of the leading agencies in relationships between different faiths. It is recognised by the Methodist Church as a nationally significant venture and by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for its work among Christians and Muslims.

Its work is in bringing people together to listen and learn from each other and to build strong local communities and it has recently won an award from the national Muslim-Christian Council.

The funds raised will go towards the refurbishment of the new Touchstone building at 4 Easby Road, Bradford, which will allow the work to extend and develop.

Over the course of three months Roger aims to play 100 games of table tennis across the circuits of the District. Please sponsor him (or get sponsors for yourself to play him) and raise money for this exciting work.

Events have already taken place in the North Kirklees & Morley, Skipton & Grassington, Settle, Calderdale, Bradford North, Bradford South, Airedale and Denby Dale & Clayton West circuits and a good sum of money has been raised on each occasion.

The next challenge takes place at Parkwood Methodist Church, Parkwood Road, Longwood, HD3 4TT in the Huddersfield circuit on Friday, 20th September 2013 when members of the Scout Group will take on the Chair of District between 6.30 and 9.00 pm. Please come along, cheer on or challenge Roger to a game.
