Lashings XI: as previously announced on our Facebook page and Twitter feed, we are pleased to announce that our primary fund raising event for 2017 will be a fixture against Lashings; the team of international all-stars. This will take place at The Grove on Sunday 20 August, and the day will include a training session for 20 of the club's youth members in the morning, and a lunch for 350 people in advance of the main event in the afternoon, with other activities to be confirmed.
This promises to be a highly entertaining day for club members and supporters alike, with a great deal of interest already expressed in terms of table bookings for the lunch and donations of prizes for the raffle in aid of Julia's House. Whilst further details will be published on the website in the coming months, the best way to find out more information is on the club's Facebook page or via the dedicated Twitter feed (@PccLashings), or to contact Chairman Fred Kerley direct (07970 974141 or @fredkerley).
