Charity bingo evening raises money which will be split between three worthy causes


By Pete Woodhouse


It was eyes down for a full house for Three Counties Running Club members who put on a charity bingo evening to raise money which will be split between three worthy causes.

Sarah Johnson, Graham Rushmer and Steve Clarke are all running the London Landmarks half marathon on March 24 to raise money for their chosen charities.

This is a closed road run that starts at Pall Mall and finishes by Downing Street. Sarah is running for The Pituitary Foundation. Around 70,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with this condition and the Foundation offers support and life long drug treatment.

Graham is running for Prostrate Cancer which affects about one in eight men in the UK dependent on age, ethnicity and family history.

Steve is running for Macmillan Cancer support. Steve chose this charity because of the exceptional care they gave to his Mum during the final stages of her husband’s life.

They thank everyone that came along to support the evening, those who kindly donated wonderful prizes, hosts Leverington Sports and Social Club, and 2boozybirds who donated a percentage of every gin they sold.

Sarah said: “I would personally like to thank Three Counties Running Club for their encouragement and support.”

The bingo, raffle and the percentage donated from 2boozybirds raised a total of £1,300.
