“Tremendous Achievement” The words quoted by Alan Lenton Chairman of The Lest we Forget Association.
He couldn’t believe the cheque for £13,000. presented to him by Chair of Horsham and District Darts League Glenda Wickersham at this seasons the recent A.G.M held at The Roffey Club.
This huge donation was made possible by an inspired 12 month collection by the customers, staff, licensees and dart team players of The Dog & Bacon (P.H.) of £10,803. This total wins not only the Highest Donation Cup (presented to Rob Massey A team capt’) but also the Highest Donation Cup runner up (presented to Si Boylett B team capt’). Along with the cups a special achievement award was presented to Debbie Benson representing The Dog & Bacon, this award is their 3rd now due to join the other 2 proudly adorning the wall at the pub.
The grand total now donated to The Lest we Forget Association since the Leagues creation in 1946 is £103,578.
