Charity Day 2013 Roll of Honour


3 Valleys Charity Day Roll of Honour 2013. Message of thanks from Ralph:

The second 3 Valleys Charity Day held on Wednesday was another massive success and was also blessed with great weather.

After worrying about the weather for a week I ended up like several others getting really sunburnt!

Attendance was up on last year and yet again the event was safe secure and everybody participated and contributed in a great way. Thanks to all of you out for supporting this event and at the same time having a wicked time and going Def Con 5!

Currently with monies to come in from other areas the amount taken on the day is 21,000 euros. Thanks to everybody as that’s a fantastic effort.
