Charity Football Match raises £4136 for Pendleside Hospice.

Final Result: NR Engineering (2) – Regal Precision Engineers (3)

NR Engineering went head to head against Regal Precision Engineers in a charity football match on Sat 11th May 2019. They raised £4,136 for Pendleside Hospice !

The event was held at Colne Football Club and included  bouncy castles, games, face painting, a ‘beat the goalie’ event, plus a very interesting performance by the Rock-It! team from the Helen Green Academy of Dance

Many thanks to all those that supported the event, including Colne F.C. They not only allowed the use of their facilities, but also provided refreshments – all down to their volunteer staff.

The Rock-it! team (Helen Green Academy of Dance) performed a dance routine in what was probably one of the heaviest downpours of rain that we’ve had for a while … or was it hailstone? Either way, even though they got very wet they were all smiling! (And they spotted us from a mile off, so there wasn’t a chance of any sneaky candid photo’s!).  Earlier in the day, we’d spotted a group of dancers attending the Colne Town Council Markets event in Colne Town Centre – they kindly grouped up to provide us with a lovely photo!


Many thanks to Steven Holmes for helping to sort out the team photo’s and to Josephine Sykes for the use of the team captain photo.
