On Saturday the 8th December 2018 Darren Smith, aka smugger\digger, made his way to the local Cancer Research Shop to spread a little happiness following the Nene’s 2018 Astro Attack . Darren took two cheques along with him representing the money raised at this years event and I understand that when he asked if they were able to accept our cheques they said yes, and expected a few hundred pounds when Darren said he had a couple to donate.
They were ecstatic after reading the first for £200 from the BRCA 1:8 Rx section and could not thank Darren enough when they read the second for £1,800. The following picture was kindly taken by the beat bobby who was passing the store.
We would like to thank all those who supported our 2018 meeting which the Nene runs every year to raise funds and our 2019 event over the weekend of the 28th / 29th September promises to be bigger and better.
We have already booked the live band for Saturday night thanks to Lee Baldry and his fellow band members.
Does not matter if you race 1:8 or 1:5 get the 28/29th September pencilled into your calendars for some charity fund raising at the Nene and lets see if we can continue our annual year on year increase.
Once again can I thank Darren Smith for organising this annual event and for all the Nene crew who welcomed the 1:8 and 1:5 racers to the Nene over the weekend helping to make our fun event fun, and to those organisations who supported the tombola and finally to the racers who came, raced and went home with empty pockets 🙂
