Jonathon is the Chairman of Rottenrow Hockey Club, a fantastic, friendly, successful team that I have blogged about many times before. They have had a truly brilliant season, winning both of their leagues, and undefeated I might add. The 1st team are also into the semi-final of the District Cup (this Saturday!!) .... pretty good for a club founded in 2008 by a few pals!
C-R-Y is a Registered Charity (which raises awareness of SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) and offers bereavement support to those that are affected. Their current mission statement is to work with cardiologists and family doctors to promote and protect the cardiac health of the young across the UK.
This is an especially relevant charity with regards to recent sporting events, and also directly affects one of Rottenrow's own team members, so it's hoped that people will dig deep and have a great night to support the hockey team and this fantastic cause.
So if you fancy coming along and supporting this great charity as well as these two successful clubs tickets are now on sale at £12 each! For more information about the ceilidh and to get your tickets become friends with Rottenrow on Facebook or email Calum Easton.
There's also going to be a raffle on the night! Who doesn't love a good raffle? Details of some of the fantastic prizes will appear on this post over the next couple of weeks but if you feel you would like to donate a prize then please drop me an email or DM me on Twitter.
