There was also had a bouncy castle, a raffle, and an auction of Burnley memorabilia.

The game itself finished 3-0 to the Vintage Clarets, thanks to goals from old Burnley favourites George Orghani, Graham Lancashire, and Liam Robinson.Stan and Frank football

Organiser of the event Nick Carter said: “The event went really well, we’re really pleased”.

“Thankfully the weather held off for long enough because just after the event had finished the heavy rain started to come.

“It was a brilliant day and it was great to see the likes of Stan Ternent and Frank Casper showing their support too”

“We still don’t know the exact amount because we’re still counting everything, but we raised £250 from the raffle alone and we’re expecting it to be over the £1,500 mark.

“I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone that got involved and everyone who donated.”

M&S Energy Project – Sustainable Local Rescue

RPMRTlogosmallWe would like to win £40k in order to install solar panels to both the Burnley and Haslingden bases. This will have a number of impacts on the team. We will reduce our demands on the electricity supply network, making the team ‘greener’ and will reduce the annual running costs of the team. The feed in tariff will also provide the team a revenue stream and bring some much needed funds in to help pay the costs of the team to go out and perform rescues, train, provide education to the public, etc.
