A few weeks ago Vince Crosby took up a challenge to do a sponsored workout in the Leisure Centre gym which was called the Paris Race. The purpose was to help Newton Aycliffe Youth and Community Centre (NAYCC), raise funds for the Centres Defibrillator.

Vince completed the workout on the 15th March and now wishes to thank all the people who donated. A special thanks goes to the Karate Group in the Centre for the £100 and the Bar staff and members of the Navy Club who also donated so generously. Although there is money still to come in it has been decided that anyone can still make a donation before we look for other funding.

Vince would also like to thank the fitness instructors in the gym for their encouragement, without which it would have been made more difficult.
