Our Charity Walk has been specifically selected for its variety and interest, giving walkers the opportunity to go through areas of Gatcombe Wood and the sensitively restored grounds of Avening Court, both of which are not normally open to the public. This is with the kind permission of the owners.
The full walk is a 10 mile circular route, the shorter walk is 3-4 miles long and both are well sign posted with marshals along the route to keep you on track. Entry is by voluntary donation and if you are unable to do the walk but would still like to contribute, you can always sponsor one of our local community walkers.
Subject to the approval of Stroud District Council, this will be a socially distanced and follow covid-19 security guidelines.
Please save the date and we look forward to another bumper turnout.
Entry from 6:00pm for picnics and the performance starts at 7. Tickets available from The Market Stores, Shiny Goodness in Nailsworth, on the night at Horsfall House and online at www.crbo.co.uk. Bring your own seating and suitable clothing as the temperature falls at sunset.
Adults £14.50, Concession £13.00 (10% discount for groups 10+ people)

Tickets £7.50 which include tea and cake are available from The Market Stores, on the day at Bell Lane and 63 Windmill Road.
Horsfall House is owned through the Registered Charity by the community with the principal objective of providing affordable care in the local area. We seek to support those who are unable to meet the full cost their care and to generate funds to continually improve our facilities.
Our fundraising is spearheaded by the Fundraising Committee:
Duncan Wood (Fundraising coordinator 07885686006)
With representation from the Horsfall House management and support from the PR, Marketing and Fundraising Support Officer Dee Wiggett.
We stage a range of events throughout the year (both traditional and ‘virtual’ ones through the website) with the aim of both raising money and involving the local community in the life of Horsfall House and showing what it has to offer.
You can contribute by donating (ideally through the website), by supporting and helping at our events or by creating your own fundraising activity. Email email@example.com for more information and look for our events on the website.

The total raised was a very gratifying £18,525. This well exceeds our original target and is not far off the expected final cost of the entire project. Enormous thanks to everyone who took part and donated so generously, a great result.
Why not support Horsfall House by joining our 500 Club?
This is a really good way of helping the work of the Charity and also gives you the opportunity to get a return on your money.
Each share costs £24 for 12 months, with a minimum commitment of one year. Payment is by Standing Order (to keep our admin costs to a minimum) and you may purchase as many shares as you wish. The prizes total 50% of the Club’s income each quarter and are apportioned as: 1st prize 27%, 2nd prize 13% and 3rd prize 10% (so prize values rise and fall with the 500 Club income).
If you would like to join, you’ll find detailed 500 Club rules, an application form and Standing Order mandate below to download and print then return to us. Or you can call Horsfall House to post these forms to you.
The Club is administered by Dee Wiggett on behalf of the Trustees and she can be reached at Horsfall House, Windmill Road, Minchinhampton GL69EY or on 01453 731227 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Draws take place quarterly after the end of February, May, August and November.
