In 2019, a group of 10 volunteers (not all hockey players or members!) helped raise £300.00 to put towards the new aquaturf pitch by marshalling at the Manchester Marathon in the Altrincham area.  Everyone enjoyed the morning and soaked up the atmosphere and some even made a day of it by having lunch out!

Due to Covid, the event was cancelled last year and this year, it has been postponed until October.  Although we have a few that have said they will happily marshal again, we really need your help to raise even more money!  This is more important than ever after the last 18 months that everyone has had. 

We have definitely been promised a spot in Altrincham but this year, with Covid procedures in place and the fact that they are holding the marathon and half-marathon on the same day, may mean that the shifts vary in length slightly.  However, it is a fun day out and you will helping the club out loads! 

So, if you are over 18, available on the day and willing to help get the new pitch, please contact Resli Taylor as soon as possible to find out more details.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks all! ☺
