Huge thanks to Fundraising Coordinator Lesley Borthwick, who organised a Race Night & disco social event for all Club members, family & friends. The event was held at Newtongrange Star FC Social Club on Friday 14th June.
The night was a great success, with a very impressive amount raised for Club funds from Race & horse sponsors, bets, raffle tickets, & roll the coin. A great night was had by all who attended - thanks to everyone who supported the event.

Bag-Packing at Tesco North Berwick!

Thanks to Amelia Lawson (& mum Kath), the Club secured a bag-packing date at Tesco, North Berwick on Saturday 30th March. Lesley & Kayleigh collated a list of helpers, to make sure that all tills for the full time we were allocated, were covered. As it was also Mothers Day the next day, some of our youngsters & parents also volunteered to man the gift- wrapping service - & wrap gifts & flowers for shoppers in the store.
The Club raised a massive amount for funds - so a huge 'thank you' to everyone who came along to help on the day. Thanks also to Tesco Community Champion, Lynne Kilcullen for helping to arrange the date for us at the store - & to the very generous Tesco shoppers in North Berwick! Thank you!

New 2019 Computer Scoring System for CETC!

  • 7 January 2019

CETC have been running competitions/events since the Club started in 2006. Over the years, CETC has built up a bank of donated second -hand computers and printers which have been pulled together to create our computer recording system. Sadly, our 12 year old mis-match system completely crashed on us at Club Championships this year- resulting in a huge amount of stress, and only manual scoring on the day.
Thank you again to everyone who chipped in and actually managed to get the event completed under the circumstances!
However, we are thrilled to announce-  that thanks to some good Boxing Day sales and the fantastic fundraising efforts of our members and our fundraising coordinator Lesley Borthwick, we have managed to raise enough funds from: Tombola, Tuck shop and Kit sale stall at Club Champs and through the CETC Christmas Raffle, to purchase 5 new laptops and a wireless printer for our events, enabling us to actually run 5 panels with an up-to-date functioning computer scoring system in future!!
We are currently looking for donations of printer paper and HP ink cartridges (colour and black) in code 304 to get this all up and running.
Please let us know if you can help!!
Thank you to all our members for their ongoing support with Club fundraisers to enable this to happen!
