SALFORD TO LIVERPOOL TERRY TORCH WALK
 

Star date: 7th May 2012

ALBION TOWERS, SALFORD – CHILDWALL, LIVERPOOL

Louise Charity Walk
Starts 8am, Fri 11th May
Albion Towers, Cross Lane, Salford 

This Friday, the manager of the Windsor Albion Co-operative is to walk over 30 miles to Liverpool carrying a symbolic torch to both commemorate the work of Terry Edis, who died last November after helping many tenants groups take control of their own housing, and to raise money to help tenants in the future.

Full details here…


Tenants are increasingly having the right to manage their own housing, and Terry Edis, who died last November, was one of the main movers and shakers of that philosophy. To commemorate his work, and to raise money to help future tenants form their own management co-ops, Windsor Albion Co-operative manager, Louise Clarke, is to walk from Salford to Liverpool this Friday carrying a symbolic `Terry Torch'.

Louise will leave Albion Towers, on Cross Lane, at 9am this Friday and walk 29.7 miles to Childwall Valley EMB in Liverpool, arriving around 6pm.

"The walk is to remember a great man Terry Edis who has helped many struggling council tenants to get together and to take power away from councils and give it back to the tenants" says Louise "The walk is very much about raising funds to help support tenants to take control of their communities in a positive and productive manner."

Louise's walk is one of many Terry Torch walks which are carrying the torch around Tenant Management Organisations across the country, ending in Stratford upon Avon in June for the National Federation of Tenant Management Organisations Annual Conference.

Louise is asking people to donate money for her Salford to Liverpool walk to which will go to the new Terry Edis Trust, helping future tenants to manage their own housing.

Louise Terry Torch Charity Walk
Starts 8am, Fri 11th May, with tea and biscuits and information on the 1000 Communities Campaign which raises awareness of how tenants can get involved in management
Albion Towers, Cross Lane, Salford.
