A ‘Hockeython’ took place at The Vagrants Ground in Willaston on Saturday 28th July 2018 and raised over £1,000 for the charity ‘Bloodwise’, https://bloodwise.org.uk/ . The event was organised by and featured players from Crewe Vagrants Hockey Club who played a continuous 12-hour hockey game on their home pitch.
Bloodwise was chosen as a Ladies 1st team member of Crewe Vagrants Hockey Club - Steph Thompson - has recently been diagnosed with Leukaemia. Steph is receiving treatment, so the club wanted to raise the profile of the charity and hopefully change the world for people diagnosed with blood cancers.
Liz Boffey from Bloodwise South Cheshire branch said, "Bloodwise South Cheshire are indebted to Crewe Vagrants for their fantastic 12 hour hockeython. The standard of hockey was amazing and the event was well supported. All monies raised go directly into Blood Cancer research. As the local Bloodwise branch, it's great to be fund raising locally in this way.
