Hexagon Boys Club Sponsored Day

We still cant believe the generosity of the people of Peterhead. Last week we were invited to the Hexagon Boys Club Sponsored Day, at the end of the event Roselyn and I were presented with a cheque for £2000 yes thats right £2000 to the Make A Wish Foundation. Roselyn and i would like to thank all the boys, parents and coaches for their hard work in raising this terrific amount of money. This bring our total so far to approximately £4300 thanks to everyone for your support, never in our wildest dreams did we ever think we would have this amount money at this stage of our fundraising efforts. After speaking to the Make A Wish headquarters this week, we have decided to use some of the money right away to send a girl from our area whose is seriously ill to see a show in London. We hope this girl will enjoy her time in London and its something her and her family will always treasure, without your help this would not have been possible.
