Where!


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh on 29th August 2013 at 07:57
Garry, it was held in the garden of thier home in Camberwell Cres. Whelley. They put a great deal of effort into making it a success .the last four years events raised over £6000.. Yvonne told me that this years party had raised over £1100, with the raffle for both a signed Wigan rugby and football still to,come. Unfortunately neither Yvoone or Joe are seen on the photograph ,no doubt busy in the kitchen or on the barbecue !.

What a good idea.Hope a good time was had by everyone.


Comment by Janice on 29th August 2013 at 12:03
Well done Yvonne and Joe and thanks for the photo Thomas. Its surprising the number of events that are held such as this and no-one really gets to know. I will be at a memorial charity bowling event on Saturday at Leigh Rugby Club. The event is in aid of a lady bowler who died fairly recently. Not playing myself as I will be doing the photos!. Starts 10.45 if anyone would like to come along.

Well done Janice...a really good cause Yvonne and Joe, and all the people there. Good photo Tom.

What a good idea and a brilliant way of getting the community together to raise money for good causes. Well done.

Thomas, is that Fred Holland nearest the camera?


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh. on 4th September 2013 at 10:07
Art, the gentleman in the foreground is Mel Welsh. They say everybody has a double!.
Regards, Tom.

Tom, he's a ringer for Fred, he lived in Camberwell Cresc too.
As did my S/I/Law ( both deceased) Margaret Thorpe & her Hubby Bill
