Event: Stevenage Armed Forces Day
Location: Stevenage Market

We arrived in Stevenage at 5.45pm on the Friday evening, after dropping off products etc. for the rest of the team at Nottingham AFD. The gazebo going around the market was just about to start going up so, after catching up with Mark Williams and Pete from Stevenage Indoor market, we headed to our digs for the evening.

The weather started a little overcast but the sun was soon shining. The tombola went down very well with the locals and we managed to sell products and clothing. There was also a raffle being held inside the market by Mark and Tracy Williams with the proceeds going to the charity.

There were a few celebrities there, I had a chat with Gabz from Britain’s Got Talent (she is a lovely young girl and is bringing her single out soon) and had a catch up with Becky (Eric Bristow’s better half) who is so looking forward to going to respite next year.

The day went very well and we managed to raise £809.47 so a big thank you to Mark and Pete for arranging the event and also to Tracy for arranging the raffle. We are also hoping that a local company is going to match-fund the charity of up to £750 so fingers crossed.
