Wealdstone FC is delighted to announce that the ever popular StonesAid gig is making a return for a fifth episode which will take place following our home league game with Hendon at The Vale on Saturday 22nd February 2014.
The event will act as a fundraiser to the playing budget with profit from the night going directly to the Stones playing budget as we strive to maintain our promotion push in the final months of the season.
Entry to the gig however, will be free of charge! On the night, there will be a raffle and a donations box for anyone who wants to throw in any spare change. The Ruislip Social Club will also be making a donation to the playing budget from the bar take on the night. It’s simple really; football, beer, music and it’s all for a good cause!
For those who cannot make the gig, do not fear – you can still help out by purchasing a virtual pint.
