The second Huw Thatcher Upperthong Cricket Club cycle challenge was a real success: thank you to everyone
With thanks to everyone involved, we had a great (and tiring!) family day out on Saturday 28th July. Everyone had a good time and we raised £750 at the same time.
1st Upperthong Brownies raise over £400 cycling at Sands :)
At the end of May (as shown in the picture) 1st Upperthong Brownies did a sponsored cycle around Sands at Holmfirth and raised over £400.
Not quite 24 hours, but it wasn’t far off. Over £1,000 raised at football on 7th July as the bananas play out of their skins
The second Huw Thatcher Trust 5 a side football tournament took place on Saturday 7th July with 160 players and lots of spectators having a great day.
A unique night for a unique young guy at the Picturedrome on 30th June 2012
So many good things to say about the 2nd gig featuring Age of Paranoia – and this year for the first time HTT – a band of 16 year olds and younger of Huw’s friends who shared the plaudits a the Picturedrome on Saturday 30th June 2012. Lots of smiles and laughs, great music, lots of commitment and effort from lots of people. A true community event featuring people from the age of 7 to over 70. That made it a unique night, totally fitting to remember a unique young guy called Huw Thatcher who we all thought about last night ♥ ♥ ♥.
2012 Hepworth Dryad 5 mile running event completed in support of Huw’s Trust on 24th June
This morning (24th June) saw the 2012 Hepworth Dryad 5 + miles multi terrain race completed in scorching sunshine. OK I lied, but at least it stayed dry although under-foot it was certainly less than dry!
Johnny Thatcher and Joe Fish complete the Reading half marathon in their ‘Thatch 2’ shirts
Huw’s 18 year old cousin Johnny and his pal Joe (both from Newbury, Berks) finished the Reading Half Marathon on Sunday 1st April. Here they are before the race.
An incredible experience at the sports night on Saturday 24th March – lost for words…..almost!
All of us who were at the Cedar Court on Saturday 24th March took place in something special. We had a highly entertaining night and remembered Huw in a positive way – and we raised something between £8,000 and £10,000 for Huw’s Trust with a substantial donation to go to ‘Beating Bowel Cancer’.
HTT put on a fantastic performance at Upperthong Village Hall on 27th Jan
Huw’s friends put on a fantastic performance on Friday night. Only formed in the Autumn, HTT have grown over the last few months into a really good and entertaining outfit.
