We are running a Charity Allegro on Sunday coming in aid of CHAS at St Margret's Church Hall in Airdrie. All entry fees and canteen profits are going to the charity. This means I am expecting you to eat Mikes cooking Sad. I am hoping to raise £500 from the event.

Currently have 21 entries over the 2 Adult and 1 Junior event and have also received donations from people who are not playing which are gratefully received.

£940.......a fantastic sum of money raised for a very deserving cause =)

A big thank you to everyone involved in organising and running the event and a special big 'Thank You' to Andy. It was a great day which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
In life, unlike chess, the game continues after checkmate.........

I have some fantastic news

Dell have agreed to match the amount raised and have the mechanism there for me to be able to claim for gift aid on the amount.

If I have done my maths correctly, that takes us to a staggering £2,256!!!!!!!!!!!
