A marathon achievement

May I take this opportunity on behalf of the committee to thank everyone who helped make our recent 24-hour pool marathon fund-raiser in aid of The Stephen Carey Fund.

It was a great success.

Our thanks go to Liz, staff and customers at The Farriers Arms, also our thanks to Donald and Fidge along with everyone who came along to support the players and event so generously.

We would also like to thank Dougall, Micky and all the staff and customers of MKM, Alnwick, for their support and generous sponsorship.

In addition, our sincere thanks to each and every one of the many individuals who sponsored by way of the sponsor sheets.

Finally, we would also like to thank the Northumberland Gazette for helping promote and report on our fund-raising events and activities in their newspaper.

We are in the process of collecting in all the sponsorship money.

Due to everyone’s generosity, we will have raised in the region of £2,500 for the fund.
