Chairman Mick Garton, Supporters Club Chief Alan Murphy and Josh Hodgson took to the decks in the Dragon on Sunday afternoon and by way of donations and a prize draw raised over £1,000 for the football club.

The afternoon started well with a cracking £500 donation from a supporter and lovely landlady of The Dragon Aunit topped that up with a £100 donation.

A further £387 was raised with donations and the prize draw and the Chairman announced he would top that up from £987 to £1,000 but a friend of Aunit’s then donated a further £60 to take the total to £1,060.

It really was a fantastic effort by everyone involved on the committee and through the Supporters Club and massive credit to manager Wayne Scott who came along to the event and stayed for the whole afternoon.

Castle Rock managing Director Colin Wilde was another who showed his face to support the club, before going to watch his beloved Manchester City win the Carabo Cup on Tv.

Many will argue music was the winner, with some classic tunes belted out by the 3 Djs and there was praise from members of the public also attending the event and by Garton’s second set, the pub was truly banging with Frankie Goes To Hollywood among the artists raising the tempo.

There were prizes in the afternoon’s big draw for Dean Gripton, Steve Scott, Bob Sharp, Alan Roome, Jamie Huckerby, Tim Bee, Bev Last, Dave Perrin, Ian White, Nigel Harman and Johnathon Noon.

The club can now settle invoices for electrical work and repair blown down fences among other things, thanks to an idea that came out of the blue from Mick and Josh who were on a night out with Dave Hodgson and when Alan Murphy came on board, the trio was complete and one suspects something similar may happen again in the future given the afternoon’s success which went on from 2pm till after 7.

“A massive thankyou to everyone who donated money and prizes and to all who attended and in particular Alan, Josh and Aunit. I really really enjoyed it and all the positive feedback means a lot” said the Carlton Town Chairman.
