The second was Children’s Hospice Care for which the club raised £525 at their skittles evening at the Tuckers Arms, Dalwood and a bingo evening at Cloakham Lawns. Up-coming YFC events include a Christmas quiz at Cloakham Lawns on December 15 and the annual Boxing Day Dip, on Monday December 27. Money raised from this will go to the Devon Air Ambulance.
