Commandos bring in cash!
May 29, 2008
Going commando brought in at least £3,000 for a charity that helps people with cystic fibrosis.
A team of four Bracknell friends organised the fun day at Admiral Cunningham pub in Priestwood on Sunday in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
The team, called Climb Commando, is hoping to raise £10,000 for the trust by climbing Mont Blanc, then walk for nine days before climbing the Dufourspitze peak of Monte Rosa in Switzerland, at the end of July.
Climb Commando, made up of Royal Marine Commando Joseph Hogan, Royal Marine Patrick Goddard, Joe Clapson and Edward Cooper, are now well on their way to the fundraising goal after people packed out the pub to enjoy pony rides, a bouncy castle, stalls and an assault course.
Landlord Barry Levey said: “It was a really good day with lots of people enjoying the fun. I think the boys will be pleased with how much they raised, the total is still going up.”
