Men’s Captain’s Day

Captains Corner : Men’s Captain’s Day

Men’s Captain’s Day.


Looks like a big field for Captain’s Day on Saturday. 


As well as the competition itself, Captain’s Day provides an opportunity to raise some funds for our chosen charity.

This year, Judy Lillico (Lady Captain) and I have chosen “Gym Possible”, run by Drew Graham as our charity.

Drew, Carol and Gary’s son, is the Joe Wicks of the disabled world!

During lockdowns, Gym Possible produced over 100 adapted programmes, fitness videos and workouts for people with a disability.

As restrictions ease, Drew is happy to announce that he is moving into new premises, at Tumble Gymnastics in Longbenton. 

He is looking forward to beginning face to face sessions with his clients again later in July.

(check out their website for more information)

All of the entry fee will be donated to the charity.
