David Allan: May 2015
As the money in our BB account had slowly been going down over recent months, the older Boys agreed to do some fund-raising — but what to do? Then someone remembered that previously we had tried to play table-tennis non-stop for 24 hours, and so the challenge was on! We looked out the details of previous events, and discovered that the 2nd Alton record of 9274 points had been set in 1995; could we beat that figure? Well, 24-hours later we knew that the answer was "Yes" because the Boys had played a magnificent 10133 points — an average score rate of 7 points per minute! We hope that their sponsorship efforts will help to swell the coffers. If you would like to make a contribution, any BB Boy or member of staff would be pleased to accept your donation!
Everyone is looking forwards to the summer programme which starts on 15th May — we'll be out-of-doors and out of uniform, and it would be a great time for any Boy in School year 6 or above to join
