Fundraising Thanks

October 19th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | News | Press Releases

A huge thank you was needed today when Zoe from the club went to meet a fundraiser.  Gareth Tansey decided to get fit and started running but then with the Ipswich half marathon to work towards he then piled on extra pressure by deciding to raise money for Suffolk Spartans at the same time.

Gareth did exceptionally well and not only completed the marathon but also managed to raise £650 for the club at the same time.  The funds will go towards additional equipment for the club as well as a few running costs.  The club were bowled over by the generosity shown and everyone at Network Rail in Ipswich, where Gareth works were pleased to meet Zoe and see her medal as she was presented with the fundraising efforts.  Huge thanks to Stewart Cowan for helping to organise all the fundraising.  We are a small club witout any regular funding so this will be very carefully spent.
