BINGO: I thought I would update for those that came to our last bingo in support of Nina and her Race For Life for Cancer Research a couple of weeks ago. Nina Davis and her fellow runners did their muddy race last Sunday. Despite the extremely hot weather she and her three friends were able to complete the 5k race. She looked really filthy when she was done but she was smiling. Well done to Nina and all those who took part. Nina made £275 in sponsorship along with the £330 from the bingo. Congratulations Nina a great effort Altogether they hope to send in just over £1,000. Great result.
