702 WALK THE TALK

Thank you so much to everyone who braved the cold and helped the Club raise money by helping at the 702 Walk the Talk. Here is a message from our Station Captain, who was someone not from Pirates who had to make sure we did our job properly!! This was sent to Glynis Mauldon who was the Pirates Captain. Thanks so much Glynis for all your hard in getting this all together – much appreciated.

 

“Thank you and the “team” from Pirates for the great work that they did on Sunday,

Everything went very well at the water table and It is pleasing to know that everyone enjoyed themselves. I hope that a few “frosties” were lifted in celebration afterwards.

Please convey my thanks to the volunteers for doing such an excellent job and making my duties so easy.”

 

Well done Pirates family – you never let the Club down
