Banstead Rotary Charity Walk

Last Sunday our team took part in the Banstead Rotary Charity walk – 8.5 miles starting and finishing at Epsom Downs. It was a beautiful day and the walk was thoroughly enjoyed by all, including Ruby the dog who was very well behaved. They have raised over £1000 for Dyscover with more donations still coming in which is brilliant! Well done and thank you to everyone that took part or made a donation. Thanks also to Tyrrells Wood Golf Club for allowing the team to make a pit stop and to get some coffees!

Epsom Rotary – Showcase Evening at Epsom Playhouse

Liz, Karen, Trustee Achim and Ambassador Maggie enjoyed an evening of great entertainment at the Epsom Rotary Showcase variety evening. The evening was to raise money for local good causes and Dyscover had two brilliant bands playing to support us. It was a great event with some very talented performers. Well done to the organisers and all those who took part- including our very own Jim and Christine!

Banstead Rotary Celebration Evening


Our Community Fundraising Coordinator Liz enjoyed an evening at Banstead Rotary last week where she collected a cheque for £500, an extremely generous donation from their Christmas collections. We are so grateful for Banstead Rotary’s continued support, and we look forward to more fundraising events with them this year including the sponsored walk in May.

Cheque Presentation

On Wednesday, the group welcomed Peter, who came to meet with members and present a very generous cheque donation of £1,500!

The funds have been collected over a year by the Look Forward Masonic Lodge at Bisley Camp. Dyscover was chosen as their Charity of the Year following an ambassador’s presentation at Bookham Rifle club a few years ago which made a lasting impact. With the mutual connection to David, who championed Dyscover in the early days of our association with the club, they felt us to be worthy recipients of their fundraising efforts – Thank you so much!

Walking Challenges for Dyscover

Dyscover supporter Theresa Peterson is taking on a huge challenge to fundraise for us this year! She is taking on a whole year of walking challenges and will aim to complete at least 7 organised walks in London including the Action Challenge Winter Walk (a half marathon!) this Sunday 29th January. We think Theresa is just amazing to have set herself such an amazing series of challenges and we wish her the best of luck with the first one this weekend!
