ET's Kit 'bring and buy' sale in aid of Cancer Research organised by Sharon G & Kirsten C

"raised £744.55 and there is still plenty to take to the shop, which means they will make even more money.  A big thank you to everyone involved today, including Dougie from Edinburgh Bike Fitting, Trish the sports masseuse and others from clubs around the city.

Special thanks must go to Keira Murray's sister Freya Ross whose donations were out of this world and had everyone wishing they were a size 8, including the men!

Cake and baking donations from club members made a big difference and added to the enjoyment" (SG).
