Far Eastern Tour – Great Wall of China Trek

Far East Trek

Long time Altrincham FC supporter John Henderson, a volunteer with The Alzheimer’s Society, has just returned from China. A group trekked 100km along The Great Wall in 6 days to increase awareness of the work the charity does and to raise donations for this very worthy cause.

A number of Skrill North football clubs, including Hednesford Town FC, were delighted to sponsor John by donating a shirt which he wore on this mission. He even managed to arrange a 7 a-side game on The Wall itself – an historical first and all in Skrill North shirts!

To date, John and his 37 intrepid colleagues, have collectively raised more than £150,000 for The Alzheimer’s Society`which works across the country including our area. Any Pitmen supporters who would wish to contribute £1 can do this by texting RLGX99 to 70070, or visiting www.justgiving.com/JohnSHenderson1960.

It was also very thoughtful of John to present the shirt, framed as a memento of its long journey, back to the club at the Altrincham v Hednesford Town match at the weekend. This will be displayed in Strikers Bar at the football club for all to see.
