HTSA have been asked by Millbridge Legend, Dave “Scoffa” Schofield to publiscise the following. HTSA would not only like to add their own congratulations, but ask that as many Town fans as possible support this event. Message reads:
All are welcome to the homecoming party for local hero Alan (Booby) Boothroyd. After completing his mammoth task of running 1000 miles in 20 days from Lands End to John O’Groats in aid of KIU we feel it befitting that we welcome Booby back in style.
The opportunity is for not just Town fans but for all that have tweeted, donated, supported, heard of or just acknowledged his incredible efforts as at halftime yesterday against Millwall with the fantastic standing ovation. Times are financially difficult for most these days yet it never ceases to amaze me how we manage to dig that bit deeper for a worthy cause. Town fans are right up there when it comes to charity as we have seen on this board alone over many years for many worthy causes.
The fund itself www.justgiving.co.uk/actionman-uk has so far raised over £15,000 which i am informed is the most ever raised for this campaign by 1 person in 1 single event. So with that we would like to welcome Booby home with a party but also to thank the unsung heroes such as the sponsors, the support team and importantly the people who have created awareness and/or donated. There will be representation from HTAFC as well as food, entertainment, presentations and a few words from the man himself about the highs/lows and the trials and tribulations of his run.
So please come along to the Canalside on Saturday 4th May 7pm til 1am. Entry, entertainment and food are all free you just need to bring your beer tokens for what promises to be a great night.
Can you please PM me if you think you may be able to attend to give me an idea regarding numbers for the food requirements.
NB… Let’s also hope this day is one for a double celebration.
