Zone Update Sunrise to Sunset Charity Match - We did it!


"Good morning everybody........"
Feb 11, 2005

Just to confirm that SZFC succesfully completed their continuous match from sunrise yesterday to sunset last night. It was truly surreal to have kicked off with the sun about to rise above the goal we were attacking, and when the final whistle went almost 15 and a half hours later it was setting behind the goal we were defending.

I will leave the Flying Scotsman with the honour of revealing the final amount raised, as he has worked tirelessly ensuring this event ran as smoothly as it did, but it was an astounding amount and way beyond our initial aims. To work full time, with a young family and still find time to dedicate to this cause is deserving of utmost respect. I know he has taken time off work to get this up and running but Im sure when the final amount was calculated last night he would have thought it worthwhile! Suggesting you all send green rep his way will barely convey the efforts he has gone to.

Thank you to all those who played a part in helping organise this, Stevie GGG, Bob Cratchitt, The General, Emu and Daisy, Cricko for his work before and during the day and those who helped run the various events and fundraisers during the day. It was my first opportinity to sample OBL's delicious cakes which she kindly provided, and they were delicious.

This board managed to raise a team of posters from here to play the last part of the match and the biggest crowd of the day assembled to see them strut their stuff. Hopefully South Bank Hank will find some skin on his knees soon!!

The auction prizes recieved some great bids, with Irate Ian picking up the signed England match ball, True Blue the limited addition poppy shirt and Christophe shirt from the Chelsea match, and deservedly the Flying Scotsman taking up Laurents shirt from the same match.

Overall all, a great occassion, a great effort and thank you to everyone for their donations, efforts and support. The Donations can still be made via the justgiving link below, but all that's left to say is thank you to everyone for your help.
