The Club’s COVID-19 Appeal raised over £3,500 and distributed it to a wide range of local charities and voluntary organisations who were in urgent need of support. Funds raised from the forthcoming Walkathon "socially distanced" community event, will be used to continue to support many charities, JIGSAW Thornbury being the principal beneficiary.
