Celebration Sunday and Fun Prizes

Celebration Sunday and Fun Prizes -Will the Ladybird beat Hercules the Hornet?

After Sunday and Tuesday’s heroics, who deserves the most thanks? Sam Ashton for his safe pair of hands? Margy for his tactical acumen? Andy Walsh for getting the players on the pitch?

To see which one supporters really wish to back, the Fair Share Team will be collecting Minithon sponsorship for Sam, Margy and Andy at the Ashton match. Donors’ names’ will be put into a draw for a free copy of the new Looking for Eric DVD (see all the prizes below)
The Marvellous FA Cup win is a great excuse to turn Sunday’s Minithon into a victory celebration with fans and players alike amassing on Chorlton Green.

Looking for Eric star Steve Evets is the official starter and will set everyone off with tales of his training with The King. TV comedian James Quinn, MAD Theatre and band Fiery Jack, will entertain us at the afterrun do, guaranteeing a good party atmosphere and a family affair.

Registration is from 11.20am with the first wave of entrants setting off at noon, quickly followed by the joggers then the crawlers. Anyone who has not yet paid their £10 (under 18s: £5) registration fee can do so at the registration desk on the day. Most of all you can help us raise funds by establishing a justgiving page and downloading a sponsorship form (scroll down to the bottom).
9,500 already raised - Now Just for one Big Long Pushhhhhhhh!

If you can’t be there on the day you can still help out by collecting sponsors for your mates and the players.

Stroll Of Honour Sponsorship Stakes Hots up

Tiger Steven Wood (£316) looks like he may yet catch Young Michael Burtonwood (£355) in the final furlong of the Stroll Of Honour Sponsorship Stakes. Tony Tarpey (£305) flying the flag of Southern supremacy is also giving it the whip. David French (£278) and Morris Minor, Callum (£275) are jockeying for the final sprint to the line and Peter Crowther (£195) and Ben Cohen (£190) have shot forward but are now in the uncomfortable position of having Faz’s dog Simba (£180) at their backsides. Watch for dark horses Tommy Stott (£100) and Scottt Jones(£100) recently arrived on the leaderboard

There’s still time for you to join or back the 150 runners and riders. Get on the Stroll of Honour or download sponsorship forms to help your mates at http://www.fcumfiles.co.uk/story.php?story_id=2441
