Paul ‘Sturge’ Leigh is a long term member of Whitchurch hockey club, and is also a firefighter. He and his colleagues are aiming to raise £1,000 to support MIND & The Firefighters Charity.
Paul and a team of Firefighters from Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service are running the Greater Manchester MARATHON in full fire fighting kit to raise money for MIND & The Firefighters Charity.
Following this they will also be participating in the Great Manchester Half Marathon in Full Kit but also with the addition of a breathing apparatus set weighing 15kg!
Please find link below to their fund raising page as all donations will be greatly appreciated.
Whitchurch Hockey Club would like to wish them all the best.
We’re now into March and the end of the hockey season is getting closer. It’s just under three weeks until our ‘End of Season Do’ so we’d like you to tell us if you’re planning on coming.
Please confirm your attendance by response to this email as soon as possible. Please choose your food selections from the menu (form attached) and then, please hand your money and menu form to your team captains or a committee member. We really need everyone signed up by Friday 15th March please.
If you’ve not yet decided to attend the ‘End of Season Do’, here’s a few reasons why you should come!
- You may have won an award! Senior club awards will be presented including each team’s best player and captain’s player.
- You may NOT have won an award but one of your team mates will, so you should be there to help them celebrate!
- The end of the hockey season needs to be celebrated! You’ve spent the last six months committed to playing hockey; it’s been hard work! Let’s celebrate a welcome break!
- Whether your team has done well or not in your respective league, coming together as a team and club is an essential way of bonding!
- We have booked a disco! Say no more!
