Sarah's fundraising is a cut above the rest
6:00pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
THE manager of the Sue Ryder charity shop, in Chard, has shown she has plenty of mowing power.
While mechanical machines may be the normal method of cutting grass, Sarah Haskins mowed her way across the pitch at Chard Rugby Club with just a hand mower.
It may have taken her several hours of hard work – but it was worth it in the end with all money being raised going towards Sue Ryder’s national Ride for Ryder appeal.
Sarah would like to thank everyone who sponsored her and those who went along to the rugby club to support her in her challenge.
The Deputy Mayor, Cllr Garry Shortland, and the town crier, Stuart Cumming, were on hand to give Sarah a suitable rousing civic send-off on her way with the mower.
“I would like to congratulate Sarah on her cutting of the rugby pitch by hand,” said Cllr Shortland.
“Sarah is an inspiration to the people of Chard – well done and it was an honour to start you off.”
Anyone who would like to contribute to the appeal may do so by popping into the Sue Ryder shop in Holyrood Street.
