The Langtons of Newton Park
📅 Saturday 27 April 2019
Corston Village Hall
Prof Graham Davis (lately of Bath Spa University) will be talking about the history of the Langtons of Newton Park, covering the rise and fall of a landed estate over nearly three hundred years. The Langtons had merchant origins in Bristol and through an astute marriage policy ended up in the English aristocracy. Col. William Gore Langton was a radical MP and Lady Anna Gore Langton was a leading suffragist; both remarkable figures in 19th century politics. The estate was eventually sold to the Duchy of Cornwall, laying the foundations for Corston’s links to the Duchy.

Newfoundland Dog Dive

Newfoundland Dog Dive 2019 – Make a splash for RUH
📅 Saturday 8 June 2019
Portishead Marina
One small splash into Portishead Marina, one giant leap for patients!

This is your chance to play a 'casualty' and experience an open water rescue by a Newfoundland Dog, all whilst making a real difference to patients and families cared for at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.
LIMITED AVAILABILITY

You will be suited up, taken out into Portishead Quays Marina by boat and then asked to jump in… but don’t worry, it won’t be long before an incredible 14 stone, four-legged hero shows off their amazing water-rescue skills and tows you safely back to the boat! As part of this experience, which lasts approximately 1 hour, you will complete a safety briefing with one of the human lifeguards and have time to get into a wetsuit (a challenge in itself!), before heading out into the marina to begin your experience. There will also be a chance for photos with your rescuer!

The day is run by the incredible team at Newfound Friends UK and their well-trained and beautiful Newfoundland dogs, on behalf of The Forever Friends Appeal - we’ll be there on the day to capture the action and support you! It’s also a fun day out for the whole family, so feel free to invite them along to watch – there will be a few Newfoundlands on dry land that they can meet!
Register today at foreverfriendsappeal.co.uk

Registration is £30 and all participants are asked to raise a minimum of £100 for a ward/department/campaign that is close to your heart at the RUH. Non swimmers are welcome (as life-jackets are worn) however you must feel comfortable in the water. This event is open to anyone aged 8 and over (those under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult).
All participants will receive fundraising advice and support, a wetsuit provided on the day (or you can bring your own) and your own event t-shirt to keep. All the money you raise will help transform care for patients and their families at the RUH.

RUH Skydive Day
📅 Sunday 7 July 2019
Netheravon Airfield
Are you looking for something extraordinary to do in 2019? In July, you could be taking one big jump from a plane, to make one giant leap for patients at the Royal United Hospitals Bath (RUH)!

The Forever Friends Appeal, the fundraising charity for the hospital, is looking for as many daredevils as possible to join them for a day of skydiving on Sunday 7th July, at Netheravon Airfield in Wiltshire.

Patients and their families face tough challenges every single day and staff at the RUH are always there to guide, support and care for them, day in and day out. The funds raised from a skydive helps the charity invest in extra-special equipment and facilities that make a real difference to everyone at the hospital, that goes above and beyond what standard NHS funding can afford. In 2019, the Appeal will also be celebrating their 20th year of fundraising and it with thanks to skydivers, the public and local community that over £20 million has been raised for the hospital since 1999. So if you’re thankful for the RUH and want to help the charity continue their work with the experience of a lifetime… then the Skydive Day is for you!

Registration costs £50 and jumpers are asked to raise £350 in sponsorship – this can be for the any ward/campaign/special appeal that is close to your heart. In return all participants will receive a jump t-shirt, fundraising guidance and lots of support from the drop zone.
