GHOST AID

We had a fabulous night on Saturday 5th September at the charity ghost hunt put on by the fabulous paranormal events company, Ghostly Goings On at the Warmley Clock Tower near Bristol.

The event raised a staggering £700 for the NCFA and we are incredibly grateful to Danni Neville and her team for giving their night up for our charity.

The event started at 9pm and went onto 3am, way past my bedtime. But the scares and laughs kept me wide awake until the end.

The Warmley clock tower location used to be an old pin factory and well know for being haunted in paranormal circles. We know of at least one death at the factory when someone fell.

Thirty brave souls, a sell-out, spilt into three groups and spent time in three locations.

The first location in was the tower itself, it was pitch dark and the hairs on my neck stood up as the room temperature changed.

At one stage their appeared to be a spirit in the room and when asked, “Do you have a message for our special guest Paul tonight, the spirit answered NO! I couldn’t help retort:” Don’t you know who I am?”

During a thoroughly enjoyable and absorbing night, we had sensors going off, left right and centre, coloured balls moving around, a chair being tapped and kicked, and something tugged on my neck chain.

The time went so quickly, and everyone had a great night and it is something I would certainly do again.

FOOTBALL SHIRTS FUNDRAISING

THE PEACE RIDE SUCCESS

The aim was to raise money for young people to participate in the 2019 Global Peace Games, Messines, Belgium.

18 cyclists representing Team NCFA, Team Starlizard, Team Basildon (Beauchamps High School and Woodlands School) and Team University of Kent, set off at 5.45am Saturday 23rd March from The University of Kent’s Peace Pitch.

The Peace Riders arrived at Folkestone’s Three Hill Sports Park at 7.45am where Paul Cooper, NCFA, Director, presented Laurence Hickmott, CEO, Shepway Sports Trust, with a Peace Poppy Ball.

Laurance, said, “ we are honoured to be working with the NCFA on this important piece of work. It is fitting that we can host a Peace Field at Three Hills Sports Park in Folkestone in memory of the great Walter Tull. We were proud to welcome the Peace Poppy Ball to kick start our own Peace Field project.”

The Peace Ride then boarded EURO TUNNEL at 9am.  The Peace Ride resumed at 10am in Calais and arrived at The Menin Gate, Ypres at 7pm.
