Presentation Night proves to be a great success

Friday night saw the annual presentation night took place at Wellington A. F. C. clubhouse, this year it was run alongside mouse racing in aid of league funds. The recipients of this year's charity donation of £1,000 were the Beacon Centre and WHERE who each received £500 apiece. The League has now over the years raised nearly £29, 000 for various good causes and members should be extremely proud of this achievement.

The evening was well attended and commenced with the single skittles for the Jim Blackmore Shield, this was won by Marc Bright of King Pins and the runner up was Ashley Bright of Oaks.
