Good work to all the players who took part in the challenge, you were all brilliant.
We would like to say big thank you to all the teams who raised a MASSIVE a total of £3,381 sponsorship (pending collection) for Saint Michael^s Hospice <> , which is a phenomenal amount of money.

The day saw Former World Champion John "Boy" Walton and Gary "Big Robbo" Robson coming along in their spare time to present the awards and help us raise more money in the evening for the Hospice. We are really thankful for their support, big thank you to Neil for arranging that.

We would like to extend our thanks to the YDP for supporting us during this month of fundraising and for being an absolute pleasure to work with. Neil and Andy were fantastic and very professional.

I would like to say that the event would not have been possible without Neil Hart of YDP, who has worked so hard this month to make it all achievable, we are so grateful for all your time and efforts. Thank you so much!

We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and night, although I think everybody is exhausted now!!
