Re: Jamal Bouzid Fun Day
I would just like to inform you's all of how our Jamal Funday went on the 17th July. We also had a small event last sunday and as such the total raised has just been finalised.
Despite rain for most of the day, we managed to have not only a successful day, but a fantastically enjoyable one. We managed to get a bouncey castle with a cover on, so the kids could still play on there, and the football competition was naturally run outdoors aswell. Indoors we had a whole host of activities including a magician, various singers, a guy who made balloon animals and a quiz.
In between showers we managed to get the football tennis going, along with a golf shot competition, some stocks to pelt wet sponges at any victims and a penalty shoot out. The barbeque was running non stop from 10 til almost 6 and despite the weather the place was heaving. Everybody there had a great time and the day was a roaring success. Even the raffle was good fun! We managed to raise and astonishing £1,415:24 on the day, as well as £1,000 from Durham FA which gave us a massive total of £2,415:24
We would just like to say a BIG thank you to everybody who contributed to making the day such a big success, including:
Hebburn Iona FC
South Tyne Benevolent Fund
Harton & Westoe Miners Welfare
White Horse FC
New Crown FC
New Crown Hotel
Jon King, Caroline Ames & Kirstie McDonald
Les (Ressly Pest, Whickham FC)
South Shields FC
Mick Sharpe and Andrew Botha
As well as everyone who displayed our posters, donated raffle prizes, attended the day, bought raffle tickets and participated in the events.
It was a great day, to say the least, and everyone there had a fantastic time.
