I’m delighted to report that Tony McHale is going to regale us with tales of his long and fascinating career in the TV and film business. Tony has written dozens of episodes of some of the UK’s top TV series including Casualty, Holby City, Silent Witness and EastEnders. He’s also directed many episodes and even acted in some top shows, too. And another claim to fame is that he is the Patron of Hearts & Souls. Do come along for what promises to be a great afternoon.
The meeting will take place at 2.30pm on Tuesday May 15th 2018 at the Magnolia Club, Magnolia Park, Valley Road, Hughenden Valley, High Wycombe, HP14 4LA. There will be a raffle and refreshments as usual. Any donations for the raffle as well as cakes and biscuits will be appreciated.

With kind regards.

As you may know, every year a troupe of loyal Hearts & Souls supporters raises money by doing a sponsored walk across 16 London bridges. This year’s walk will take place on Sunday 30th September 2018. Would you and your family and friends like to join us? We’ll be meeting at 8.30am at the Hurlingham Club close to Putney Bridge and the walk will finish at around 1.30pm at Tower Bridge. It’s approximately 12 miles or 33,000 steps mostly on pavements and hard surfaces but there are some steps to climb to cross some of the bridges. This event is a big fundraiser for us. It’s also great fun and a wonderful way to take in the London river views and landmarks. Click here to see the illustrated route guide.
We’re hoping 50 to 75 walkers will join us, raising an average of £100 in sponsorship to meet our target of £5000. Of course, we will be delighted to exceed this and with your support, either as a walker or sponsor, we are sure we can do this. To maximise fundraising and to make it as easy as possible, we have opened a special online team fundraising page on JustGiving and will give you full details of how to join it when you register. We will also provide you with a sponsorship form for off-line donations.
For operational reasons we need to limit the number of walkers to 75 so we recommend you register as soon as possible. Registration is free. Because we have very limited car parking facilities at the Hurlingham Club and to minimise travel costs, we’ll also be arranging a coach from Old Amersham at a cost of £10 a head for the round trip. The coach will collect you from Tower Bridge for the return journey. Public transport is another option.
How to register Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org giving the following details for each walker: · Name · Email address · Mobile ‘phone number (just in case we need to contact you on the day) · How you plan to travel to the Hurlingham Club
We will send you full details but please don’t worry if you don’t receive an instant reply from us as we are not using an automated process.

Hurry! Book now if you want to come on our lovely new Summer Thames Valley Walk...
If you want to come on our brand new five-mile sponsored walk around the Thames Path and Chiltern beechwoods near Little Marlow, the sooner you register the better. The walk is on Sunday July 22nd 2018 and we have to limit the number of walkers to 40 and more than half the places have already gone.
About the Summer Thames Valley Walk We will meet up at 9:30am on Sunday July 22nd 2018 at the Bucks CC car park by Spade Oak Lake (nature reserve) between Bourne End and Little Marlow. We’ll set off in groups, each led by a guide who knows the route well. We’ll follow a stile-free circular route of 5 miles via the village of Fern, through open fields and beautiful Chiltern beechwoods (part of the Chiltern Way), and then into the pretty village of Little Marlow down to the Thames Path before returning to the car park. This varied walk is partly on pavement but mainly on footpaths so you’ll need suitable footwear. It’s suitable for walkers of all ages. Why not bring the whole family? We should easily be finished by 12 noon and can then enjoy some refreshment and food, if you wish, at the adjoining Spade Oak pub to swap stories, socialise and recover from our exertions.
Sponsorship There’s no charge for joining the walk but our goal is for every participant to raise £50 in sponsorship for Hearts & Souls. To make it a real team effort, we’ve set up a team fundraising page on JustGiving and will tell you how to join the team and raise sponsorship when you register.
How to register Registration is free and easy. Simply click here and provide the following information in your email. · Name of each walker · Email address of each walker · Mobile ‘phone number of one of your party (in case we need to contact you on the day)
Then click send. We will mail you full details but please don’t worry if you don’t receive an instant reply from us as we are not using an automated process.
We do hope you’ll join us and very much look forward to seeing you on the day.
