Crewe Vagrants Hockey Club presented a cheque for £1,041.46 to Liz and Mike Boffey from the charity ‘Bloodwise’ at The Vagrants Ground on Sunday 9th September 2018.
The money was raised by the club via a ‘Hockeython’ 12-hour hockey game that took place at The Vagrants Ground in Willaston earlier this year.
Bloodwise was the chosen charity as a Ladies’ 1st team member – Steph Thompson – was diagnosed with Leukaemia earlier this year.
Steph is receiving treatment, and the club wanted to raise the profile of the charity and improve things for people diagnosed with blood cancers.
Liz Boffey from Bloodwise South Cheshire branch said: “Bloodwise South Cheshire are indebted to Crewe Vagrants for their fantastic 12-hour hockeython.
“All monies raised go directly into Blood Cancer research. As the local Bloodwise branch, it’s great to be fund raising locally in this way.”
Future local Bloodwise branch events:
– Thursday 18th October (8.30pm) – Bloodwise Quiz at The Vine Inn, Hospital Street, Nantwich. £2 entry to include buffet. All welcome.
– Saturday 15th December (9am to 12noon) – Coffee Morning at Nantwich Parish Rooms, St Mary’s Church, Nantwich. Entrance = £1 to include tea, coffee and biscuits with free refills. There will also be a cake stall and a £1 stall. All welcome.
