2009 Charity Day
Paul Strank Roofing organised a family fun day held at our Head Office for everyone to attend and help raise as much money as possible for BBC Children in Need. We started to prepare for the event the night of 26th of June with many volunteers staying on site till well after midnight to prepare signs, banners and stalls ready for the big day held on the 27th June 2009. We had Radio Jackie road show crew setup outside the offices here given us “the sound of SW London” all day from 10am till 4pm , we had cast members from the Bill walking around and signing autographs all day until Nasty Nick (John Altman) turned up and they throw the cuffs on him. John Altman (Nasty Nick) bail was then auctioned to get him released. The BBC who kindly lent us their Pudsey Costume, Luke Worral was in attendance for nearly whole day having photos with the public, organising things for things to go into the raffle and generally a pleasure to have at the event
We had The Fore Playing live music and everyone a had little dance to. We had the best BBQ and hog roast around supplied by The Hideaway, Attics sponsored the bar where cold drinks and beer, wine and champagne could be bought. That alone keep the adults amused but we couldn’t forget the kids as that’s what the whole of the day was about, so we had a bouncy castle inflated on the grass outside the office which was kindly paid for by one of our neighbours down here on weir road Colourwash Bathrooms, small area where the go-carts where whizzing around which where kindly donated by (Rob Laughton), rodeo bull, face painting, fire brigade, just to name a few.
We had the new and never seen before 2009/10 AFC Wimbledon Squad kindly come down after there 1st training session this season and sign anything you lot was asking to be signed. AFC Wimbledon also had a stall selling there merchandise and a penalty shoot out for us to try our shooting skills, all the proceeds taken by AFC Wimbledon were donated to the Children in Need Charity.
