4 May 2011 Davenies School Space-Hop for Dougie

On Friday 20th May, Davenies’ boys, their sisters and friends, staff, parents and grandparents completed a marathon, 3 hour space hop to raise money for the Lt Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust.The grand total raised stands at £4,555.29. Well done to Hayden Davis, George Hall, Will Kidd and Xavier Garnham who set up stalls and between them raised over £500. The frantic pace that was begun by a 10 second, space-hop count down to 6pm with the Headmaster and Lt James Howlin of the Coldstream Guards did not let up for the full three hours. Bob the DJ, with one or two little helpers on the microphone, kept everyone bouncing, dancing and singing right through to 9pm. An amazing night, a fantastic total… Thank you to everyone who donated money to this wonderful charity and well done to all the hopping teams; amazing, amazing, amazing!
