Press Release Rob Burrows
A match played in great spirit with many “golden oldies” taking part on both sides including five Fordingbridge founder members John Mouland
, now club President now club President, Steve Godden, Mike Noke, Doug Park and George Pollard.
It was a memorable day for the ‘Bridge with other events including an Auction of Promises, a Pains Fireworks display and the Robbie Wallace band throughout the evening. Around £6000 was raised for Tony O’Connell’s charity, the British Heart Foundation, and the Epilepsy Society in memory of Tony’s daughter, Amy, who died a year ago.
Now comes the second part of the O’Connell Challenge with Tony’s son, Paul, and two other Vice-Presidents, Chris Langford
and Nigel Lunt, planning to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, a distance of 960 miles in eight days from May 13-20. Readers can help boost the funds by donating on the “Just giving” sites as follows:
