New to the 2013/14 season we have sponsored a podcast alongside Forever Bury Fc. In doing this we will receive more coverage along with Forever Bury Member and budding journalist Michael Henson of who will be conducting the podcast alongside compiling Bury FC match reports.
The next sponsored walk will be to Rochdale 7th September 2013. We will be meeting at 9:00am at the Forever Bury Cabin.
This is one of our most enjoyable events so we are please as is often repeated, the Forever Bury Sponsored Walk should be our biggest event of the year.
Accepted we only have a small fan base but there should be enough able bodied fans capable of completing this, Just 500 walkers raising £30 each in sponsorships would net us £15,000 to put into the next Forever Bury Project. So please dig out your walking shoes, get involved and do something positive for our club. If you can’t walk then please still pick up a sponsorship and raise some sponsorship cash for one of the walkers. Sponsorship forms are available in the cabin or can be downloaded from our website
