MASHY’S MARCHERS STRIDE FORTH AGAIN
Saturday 7th March saw the second Mashy’s Marchers flat cap walk to support Dorothy House Hospice Care and The Bath Rugby Foundation. Twenty Seven stalwart walkers donned their caps to raise money and remember a much loved Warminster friend, colleague, husband and father.
In total 417 walkers left Dorothy House at 1pm, walking the eight miles to The Rec where many stayed together to watch the Six Nations match between England and Wales.
Emily Knight, Event Fundraiser at Dorothy House Hospice Care said: “Yet again the 2020 Bath Rugby Walk was an incredible day with teams from Bath, Wiltshire and Somerset taking part.”
Mashy’s Marchers who all wore flat caps and were walking in memory of the much missed Warminster friend and colleague Stuart Morgan-Nash came out in force, again. Nikki Morgan-Nash, wife of Stuart Morgan-Nash, who was cared for by local hospice Dorothy House before he died of cancer said: “Stuart was a big rugby fan and introduced all three of our children to Bath Rugby and events like The Clash. He loved the outdoors and being in the countryside so the Bath Rugby Walk is a perfect way to remember such a special man to so many of us. Our Mashy’s Marchers Team had forty-five walkers last year and we raised £4,760 on an amazingly memorable and sunny day. This year we had twenty seven walkers to join our team including many of Stuart’s fellow teaching colleagues and past pupils as well as family and friends.”
