...When all monies from the sale of race cards prior to the evening have been collected in and added to the money raised on the evening itself from ticket and tote sales, the raffle and the auction race a grand total of £1010 will have been raised for the MSA. In addition to this amount, the MSA made a donation of £135 to the Sefton Women and Children's Aid Charity on the night.
The monies raised will enable the MSA to continue to run coaches to away games at discounted prices making travel to away games more affordable to all. It allows the MSA to make regular donations to our club to assist in it's running costs.
