Children in Need
The ECatsBridge for Children in Need Pairs
Well - let's look forward to the 2019 event. the BBC tell me that "their" date, the date for the main show is 99.9% likely to be Friday 15th November so we are keeping our fingers crossed they are going to stick to that and we have set our dates as :
Friday 8th November, then Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th November
so please join us if you can - we love to have your company ! Mind you I will be in touch and asking your club to play before too long.
The final total sent to Children in Need from the 2018 event was£75,258.46 ! Please accept our thanks for your wonderful support and your generosity of spirit. To think when we started this we were hoping that we might (with luck) raise about £5,000 ... unreal! Just how high does it get ! That is a grand total to date of £ 1,031,381.30 !! WOW. Isn't that just amazing.
So now - dare I say it - it's onward and upward to hit the next magic spot of one and a quarter million ! With your help I am sure we will manage it though it may take a year or three
