Christmas Charity Camp 2015 raises £1900
Sixteen coaches gave their time, 60 children attended and made donations and the facility gave the pitch. The charity this year was close to our hearts. Following the tragic accident at Old Loughts in December where 23 year old Tom Wilson received a fatal blow to the head from a stick during a training game the money raised will go to the Charity chosen by his family. The camp was on the day of his funeral and in recognition the children and coaches put purple and white tinsel on thier sticks and posted a photo to #sticksoutfortom. The camp raised £1900 and we would like to thank all those that took part.
