Hartlepool social club on cue for charity with Christmas jumper fun
Members of Hartlepool’s South Durham Social Club raised vital cash for local people living with a degenerative condition in a festive fundraiser.
The “Steelworks” club in Westbourne Road raised a fantastic £530 to the Cleveland branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association by donning their best Christmas jumpers for a night.
The lads also raised cash from organising football cards and raffles.
Members of the Hartlepool Over 50 and Disabled Snooker League, which the club plays in, contributed £100 to the total.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving access to care, research and campaigning for people living with or affected by MND.
Earlier, snooker players from the Steelworks club made a sweet donation of chocolate to the chemotherapy ward at the University Hospital of Hartlepool.
The club raised money from football cards and a raffle to buy around 30 boxes of chocolates and other treats for patients and staff to enjoy over Christmas.
Dwane Douglas and Brian Minton from the club presented them to grateful nurses on the ward.
