£10 000.00 - CRUSADERS REMEMBER STEVE WITH A BUMPER FUNDRAISER
ON the 28th December 2013 at Hattons Solicitors Crusader Park the lads and lasses of Thatto Heath Crusaders ARLFC came together to enjoy the festive Season and raise funds for the Steve Prescott Foundation.
It was the brainchild of Open Age Player Steve Woods and his Buffspromotions team to bring everybody together in Steves name. The day included a 10K run starting at Haydock Island and running back t the Club in Thatto Heath. This was followed by a Masters V Open Age Rugby Game and then entertainment from Mad Hat Ska and DJ’s Alex Porter and Crazy Eyes.
Steve said “everybody played their part but never did we think we could make such a sum and this is testament to those who participated and the respect people have for Steve Prescott”
Martin Blondell Secretary commented “ This is a fantastic start to the year and at a time of great sadness for the SPF. This fund rasing fits our profile going forward of getting everybody involved and having fun. An awesome effort by Steve Woods, Perry Kenyon and all the people involved in a great club at Thatto Heath Crusaders”
The work does not stop here for Buffspromotions who have in the past raised money for other charities and hope to make the Steve Prescott Day an annual event.
