In what has become an annual event, The OASST members once again took part in two sponsored walks in memory of Stanley stalwart Jack Barrett and to raise funds for The Supporters Trust and a local organisation.
Last year we raised £1,000 towards Hyndburn Baby Bank. This year, inspired by former Stanley player, Chris Grimshaw and his successful battle with alcohol addiction and to support the community, the Trust are looking to use part of the money to fund weekly AA meetings at the Accrington Stanley Sports Hub.
There were two walks on Saturday 22nd October, the day Stanley entertained Bolton Wanderers.
Walk One: From Turf Moor, Burnley to Accrington Stanley
9:00 am start. Approx. 8 miles/3 hours
Jodie Boast plus 1
Paul Baldwin plus 1
Back up for emergencies etc.
