Not only was Taggart’s Trot a lot of festive fun, it raised a record total of £2,120 for our charity partners St Teresa’s Hospice in Darlington. Take a bow, Grant, for another fantastic effort. 

That brings the total raised for the Hospice to more than £12,000 in the nine years since these events have been staged in Barton. This year, we set another record with 75 teams drawn from far and wide as news of the event spreads every year.

The club also earned some good publicity in the local press – and we do it all again in just over 11 months’ time! Well done to Grant and everyone who made the day such a big success.
