Allstars smash through £100k mark.
The UK Charity Allstars have made it past the £100k barrier ahead of the start of the tournament. This marks the first time that more than six figures have been raised for our charities before the weekend even begins and makes this the most successful Allstars campaign to date, with plenty more still to come.
Over three thousand pounds have been added in the past 24 hours alone which, after so much hard work already, really is exceptional.
This incredible amount is a testament to the months of hard work and dedication by our Allstars and supporters and the Organising Committee say a HUGE thank you to everyone for your incredible efforts for our very worthwhile causes.
Allstars Chairman Paul Sullivan said:
'There really isn't anything else to say but 'Wow!'. In increasingly difficult times for fundraising, and with so many of our Allstars having busy lives, it's almost beyond belief that this could be done before the weekend arrives. I say almost, because I think I would now believe the Allstars are capable of anything they set their hearts and minds to.'
A few years ago we raised our record ever amount - £136k. But that included an additional event on the friday that saw over 1000 people in attendance, and which we don't have this year. To have already surpassed that weekend at the same stage is incredible and with entry, raffle, donations and more sponsorship and gifted revenues to come, this year is going to be the banner year for the Allstars.
We can't wait to welcome you to the Viola Arena for a fantastic weekend of hockey and friendship. Here's to #Cardiff19!'
Thank you all.
