Smith surgery on July 11

WE have received some positive news on injuries with confirmation that Ed Smith’s knee surgery will be done on July 11.

It will involve the knee on which he has had two reconstructions, but the operation will be to investigate a torn cartilage and is in no way connected to his previous and more serious surgery on the same joint.

Said Ed:

“At this stage I’m not too sure what will be involved because it all depends on whether the surgeon can repair the cartilage or whether he will have to remove it. He won’t know until he gets in there.

“I could then face a recovery period of six weeks or maybe longer, all depending on what he finds.”

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
