Vale Press helping to buy “Taz” a new Leg … An inspiration for a generation.

Vale Press were delighted to sponsor the recent “Stratford-upon-Avon Business Sporting Club Dinner” with guest speaker – England and British & Irish Lions Rugby Union legendary hooker and now BBC pundit, Brian Moore.

The raffle raised an incredible £1150 for our nominated charity – “Taz’s Leg Fund”.

When he’s not managing Vale Press’s client expectations, Tom Stowe will more-often-than-not be found coaching, managing and chairing the “Mini’s and Juniors” section at Stratford-upon-Avon Rugby Club’s Pearcecroft ground.

It was there in 2017 that Jon “Taz” Tarrant was playing Prop position for Stratford Rugby Club First XV when a ruck collapsed ending in a life-changing injury to Taz. This resulted in a lower leg amputation in September last year and Taz having a prosthetic limb fitted.

But the “inner sportsman” within Taz now wants more – he wants to start running again.

A prosthetic running limb costs nearly £10,000 – and that’s what the raffle proceeds are going towards. To help Taz run again!

We’re convinced that Taz will succeed and be an inspiration to a generation.

Our thanks to those who donated/attended the dinner and in particular to Jean & David Duckham who organised the event.

If you would like to donate – here’s the JustGiving page.
