The wet weather did nothing to dampen the spirits at the Paramount Club last Friday night, when over two hundred people turned out to launch RecAid.

The RecAid total now stands at just over £10,000, of which £8,000 was raised at the Paramount. It's a great start but there's a long way to go. Already there are plenty of ideas for other events and many offers of help, as well as donations arriving at the RecAid website.
