Liam Henderson Memorial Football Match 2005
John and Janice Henderson are well on their way to the second Memorial Football match in memory of their son Liam.  A committee has been helping them this year to gather in the prizes for the big raffle.  The football match takes place on Saturday 23 July at 1.00pm and this year a seven a side knockout competition will be run in the morning between local primary school teams.  In 2004 the memorial match and raffle raised the incredible sum of over £27,000.  The group were able to help several groups and charities in addition to East end Boys Club, Wick and Newmacher Football Club.  It is now set up a sports charity and only sports related groups can benefit.  A silent auction will be held on Sunday 24th July at Sinclair's bar for some pretty good prizes.  Prizes for the raffle or the auction can be sent to Janice Henderson 103 Henrietta Street, Wick.
