Please support our Marathon Runners!

Whilst most of us have been getting over our Christmas Cake eating Clare Regale-Day and Colin Russell have been busy training for the Marathon to be held on 24th April 2016.

With our English weather dipping to 1 degrees we cannot thank Clare and Colin enough for their gruelling training programmes. If you see them training along the Thames or over our rural countryside, please give them a wave and a cheer!

Please also follow the links below and support them in helping our young people of Suffolk.

In the meantime, well done to both Clare and Colin and our thoughts are with you!

You will be able to sponsor them using our online donation page very soon,  so watch this space!

Round-up: “Battle of the Genres” 5-a-side football

On Sunday the 13th of September, we held our first “Battle of the Genres” 5-A-Side inflatable football tournament, and what a fabulous day we had. With chanting and cheering, a happy mayhem was had by all.

The “Battle of the Genres” Inflatable 5 A-Side Football Tournament has now been gallantly fought!

Who were the champions this year you wonder? This year the title goes to… The Metal Godz! Congratulations guys!

Thank you so much to everyone who turned out to fight for their music genre and came along to cheer everyone on.

A massive thanks to those that stepped in to play, especially those who joined in at the last minute.

As always, a huge thanks to the Steamboat Tavern for hosting us.

I can genuinely say that the smiles, laughter and friendly banter were everything we could have hoped for.

Thank you everyone for your continued support! Hope to see you again soon.
