Crocus Cancer Support Night

A great night was had at the Crocus Movember Shave Off at the week end with massive  thanks to the many club members and friends who grew a mo/beard and or got a full shave or leg wax in aid of Crocus with thanks also to all who donated and supported the men involved. Special mention of  Denise Brennan for organising the whole event which raised substantial funds for this worthy cause.
