Website Update and Thankyou

Just to keep everyone informed on changes to the website, all the pages to your right have been given a makeover and a good page to look at is the list of charity groups that we have directly helped. We have indirectly helped other groups but those charity groups are the ones we have directly raised funds for. Hopefully in the future that page will be filled with charity groups we have helped.

So thankyou to all those members past and present that have contributed to the group.
