 The Charity Competition

This year the competition to guess the total scores in all the finals was for the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton. The competition was very ably run by Diane and raised £50, which will be contributed to funds to be raised by Elaine when she gains a place, (fingers crossed ), to run in the next London Marathon.
