Helping in Scott’s memory

FRIENDS of Buxton Marine Scott Taylor, who was killed in Afghanistan last year, are to fundraise in his memory this weekend.

The group are planning to collect donations over the Bank Holiday weekend outside Asda in Hazel Grove. All the money they collect will be donated to Help the Heroes in memory of Scott, who died last May.

Buxton man Mark Shipley, one of the organisers and a friend of Scott’s, will be at the store tomorrow (Friday), Saturday and Sunday with a bed that has been specially converted to use in charity bed pushes, to further boost the fundraising. He will be joined by friends over the weekend.

Anyone who would like to help should call Mark on 07940 857 794.

Alternatively, you can email

Any local businesses who would like to sponsor t-shirts for the fundraising team is also asked to contact Mark.
