Walkden based singer songwriter Vinny Peculiar is donating money from the sales of his latest single to our fundraising appeal.
Vinny, a long time supporter of the club, is aware of the rich musical tradition that goes back to the earliest days of the club. As well as sport, one of the original purposes of the club was “for the cultivation of music both instrumental and vocal….”
Three Salford Lads John Higgins, Anthony Rice and Mark Norbury raised over £1000 for the club in a 60 mile bike ride from Salford to Blackpool.They also raised money for Christies Hospital, Manchester.
The 3 are up for doing it again next year, so if you want to sponsor them please get in touch.
Twelve young club members (supported by adult volunteers) spent the weekend helping shoppers pack their groceries at our local Sainbury’s supermarket in Regent Road. Over the 2 day period they collected over £2,000 in donations towards our £1,000,000 appeal. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this total and to Sainsbury’s who offered us the opportunity.
