We’d both like to say a massive thanks to everyone who sponsored us for doing the Great North Run. The charity ‘CRY’ does amazing work for young people and the money raised will help them to continue this. Tinka meant so much to us and everyone who knew him and he’s still missed very much. He loved playing football, especially for Red House Farm and he would have been really touched, as we were, that the club decided to match all donations made to our funding page on Saturday evening before the run. That amount was an extraordinary £715, meaning we’d smashed our target before we’d reached the start line. We’ve had more donations since, so our total at the moment is a brilliant £1570. On behalf of CRY, Tinka and both of us, thanks again to the club and everyone involved for your support in helping us do this brilliant event for in memory of a brilliant and wonderful friend. It just confirms again that the people at our club are the best around!!!
