Fantastic turn out for the Goostrey Juniors FC car wash on Saturday 2nd March.
“Many thanks to all the wonderfully supportive people of Goostrey and surrounding area who turned up in their dirty vehicles and in many cases returning with second cars!! Really proud of the boys (and parents) who worked their socks off all day! Huge thanks to 1st GoostreyScouts for the donation of car wash products, the loan of vital equipment for the day, and for their help setting up beforehand and clearing up after!
Also thanks to GoostreyNews and Trading Post for promoting the event, Rick Wharf and Junction 19 Commercials for bringing the water tank, The Crown Inn for allowing us to take over their car park for the day and for the much-appreciated chips and hot chocolate! Also thanks for donations from Don Richardsono Ltd (Autoglym Distributor), Williams Print, SP Environmental Ltd and North Western Materials Handling Ltd.
Total raised in 5 hours of car washing was £750 – fantastic achievement! Quiz night on Tuesday 26th Feb raised a further £200, bringing the total raised by the club in a week to almost £1000! Amazing! This will go towards a tournament the boys are taking part in end May in Portugal, and also for much-needed kit and equipment for our new season 2019-20.
The weekend ended on a particularly high note, as our home win yesterday meant the team is now unbeatable at the top of the league –CHAMPIONS FOR 2018-19!” Goostrey Juniors Football Club.
