Proud to be supporting Christopher’s Smile

This year, we are pleased to be supporting local charity, Christopher’s Smile. Christopher’s Smile was set up in October 2008 after the founder’s son Christopher was lost to an aggressive medulloblastoma brain tumour.  New treatments are urgently needed for the 20% of children who do not survive this type of disease along with those children who survive but face a lifetime of post treatment issues.  The charity has raised over 1 million pounds for research projects that will benefit the children across the childhood cancer community. The charity pays no wages and making use of volunteers, they control their costs. When expenditure is unavoidable it is covered by either specific grants or paid for by the Trustees.  Every penny of a donation is used for the cause for which it was given. Look out for representatives of Christopher’s Smile as you...

CPR U11 Hawks win the NEHYL Div 5 Cup

            The CPR U11 Hawks, led by Mike Jeffreys and Russ Gill,  have lifted the NEHYL Division 5 cup this morning in Alton in a hard fought battle against Hook Utd Lions. With a goal coming from a corner just five minutes into the game the remaining 85 minutes was a nail biting time for the spectators. The teams were well matched and Curley had several chances on goal with one hitting the post.  Hook battled on and had a few chances but the Hawk’s goalkeeper demonstrated that he is safe pair of hands, coming out several times as a sweeper keeper to meet Hook one-on-one. In the final fifteen minutes, Hook threw everything they’d got at trying to get that equaliser but Hawks defended valiantly and secured their 1-0 victory. A wonderful team effort, well done...
