On behalf of my wife, family and myself, we are proud to be hosting our fourth annual event, ‘North Lincolnshire’s Strongest Man 2017 and Family Fun Day.’
This event has a huge emphasis on family, local people, local businesses and last but not least, FUN!
As always this is a charity day, raising vital funds for our local Hospice, Lindsey Lodge. 100% of all monies raised helps this wonderful place, that has touched the hearts of many local families and will always have a special place in mine and my families heart.
For those of you who don’t know, I lost my Sister Laura and my Grandad, within 6 months of each other in 2014. Both of whom were looked after by those ‘Angels’ at the Hospice.
To date, the past 3 years events have raised a total of over £9,100.00 for Lindsey Lodge, allowing them to continue to support other families in the same way as they did mine.
2017 is set out to be a spectacular event, with even more family attractions and stalls.
I will be putting out sponsorship opportunities as well as requests for raffles prizes and stalls, so please look out for these.
I would like to thank everyone for their continued support, however you choose to do so.
Richard & The Cowling Family.
