120days update – 62 days to go!


62 days remaining in our #120days challenge and we are another £500 up from a fortnight ago, putting us at the 20% mark but with the big events set to begin as we enter June!
Throughout May we have seen some very generous donations from you all, so thank you!

There has been overwhelming support and donations for Offensive Lineman Liam Stevenson and his weight loss challenge, which has seen him smash it and lose 37.9 lbs in this recent stage and a staggering 7.5 stone loss overall – unbelievable.


Head Coach Mal Ditcham fed some hungry workers with his American Football themed bake sale, selling out within 10 minutes!


Then, last Sunday, headed by Offensive Lineman Gary Christie, a small team of Lightning players attending the “Shave by the shore” tug of war at the Newbiggin beach Fayre and as a result, received a generous £50 donation!

We have also had a Newcastle United shirt auctioned off by Mr Conley and much much more and donations fly in for the activities lined up in June and July, such as the blood drive, Northumberland Coastal Path Walk, Great North 10k and Hadrians Wall Walk.
