Get your hands dirty for hospice

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

THE count­down has be­gun to our in­au­gu­ral Mud Pack Chal­lenge, which takes place at Ashridge House in just 10 days’ time on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 19 at 10am.

We are so grate­ful to ev­ery­one in and around Che­sham and Amer­sham who has signed up to get filthy and raise funds for us, but we would dearly love some more mar­shals to guide peo­ple round the wet and muddy ob­sta­cles on the scenic park­land route.

The scenery will be gor­geous, the at­mos­phere will be buzzing and there will be free cof­fee and dough­nuts for all vol­un­teers! If you’re free and think you can help, please email mud­pack@ stfran­cis.org.uk or call 01442 869 555.

The BBC’s An­tiques Road­show ex­pert John Bly is com­ing to Berkham­sted later this month to host a spe­cial val­u­a­tion evening at pre-loved fur­ni­ture show­room Re­turned to Glory.

The lo­cal res­i­dent fur­ni­ture ex­pert will be at the North­bridge Road store on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 15 from 5.30pm to 9pm, cast­ing his trained eye over any­thing pun­ters bring him from small fur­ni­ture items, sil­ver, metal, bronze and glass­ware to porce­lain, ceram­ics, enam­els, ivory and toys.

Ev­ery­one is in­vited and re­fresh­ments, in­clud­ing wine, will be served and guests can bring a max­i­mum of two items per per­son, each to be val­ued by John in re­turn for a £5 do­na­tion to the Hospice.
