Food was excellent too as always, so thank you to Table Eight for hosting the event! You were brilliant!

Just to give you an update on the 3 lads climbing to Mount Everest Base Camp – this was originally due to happen earlier this month but had to be postponed due to the avalanches that occurred earlier this year.
We are pleased to announce though we now have new dates for the climb, so Dave, Josh & Kyle will be setting off on 22nd September 2016 and will be out there for 2 weeks.The overall total target is £15000.00 and we are pretty sure with all the help and support from everyone this is a very doable target.
