The High Sheriff Fund is headed up by the current High Sheriff, Richard Haszard. Richard and his wife Sarah have been fundraising by, among many other things, running half marathons throughout Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent. Their next half marathon is the Stafford Half Marathon. All donations to the High Sheriff Fund will be matched on a one to one basis, so your if you donate £10, the Staffordshire Community Foundation will match it with £10, resulting in a £20 donation to the High Sheriff Fund. With gift aid this could be as much as £25.60, for your original £10 donation.
