I’m afraid I have the very saddest news to pass on- some of you will already be aware. Ian Gent who many of you will know has been fighting illness for some time, passed away peacefully on Friday in Woodlands Hospice surrounded by his family, and is now at peace. Ian was a lovely man whose tireless drive, enthusiasm and energy in any group he was involved in had a big impact and not least in him starting the first Nordic walking group with Active Sefton 4 years ago; from Ian’s initial relationship building many subsequent groups have been set up with Active Sefton.
Some U3A members are going to complete the 10K Walk – ‘Light Up The Night for Woodlands’ in memory of Ian on 13th October and one of our members is hoping to secure match funding from Barclays Bank. This will mean that anything raised, up to £750, will be doubled by Barclays. If you are able to, please support this fundraising in Ian’s name.
I am sure your thoughts will be with Lyn and the family at this very sad time
