A huge thanks to David Aston for inviting us over to the memorial day.It was a great honour to be apart of the history of Aston coaches celebrations.Even more so that we were able to have a tombola stall and raise money at no cost. Also a big thanks to Bob Harrington of Harringtons heritage for putting on a vintage coach trip with all proceeds to be donated to our charity. What a marvelous day , beautiful weather, amazing people, money raised, who could ask for more.
Stockton f.c. 2 – 1 the rain
what a day. It all started of good at the begining of play, sun was out. stockton f.c came out with some sweet moves leading to a stall of sweeties. Gooooaaaall stockton. 1-0. end to end sunshine till half time. Then came the rain with a cheeky early drizzle. 1-1. all to play for still. Stockton f.c. came back fighting for the cause despite the rain with a spectacular tombola raffle. 2-1 stockton. so all in all , what a fab day . The rain tried , but failed . We had too many champions on our side raising money. A big thanks to stockton football & cricket club for the inviting us to be apart of the family fun day.
Well what to say were back at it again, rolling around in mud and raising money. This year we returned in force, with over 60 runners. It started as a perfect day, clear sky, mild breeze, so perfect. Then it all went to mud , literally. Our group started at 2pm and we’re glad to say all off us finished. So 7 zones off mud, mud, mud and obstacles. We thoroughly enjoyed it , even though at first everyone was a little apprehensive. Once the race started, running through woods, climbing walls, nets, under water, swimming in mud we couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves anymore . You can surely say the same for all that took part just from looking at the photos off their smiles (while covered in mud). A massive thanks to all that took part. so humbling to see so many in our t-shirts, and the increase from last year. Well done to you all and thanks again. See you same place ,same time next year.
