A good time was had by all
The first meeting of the Bellavista Social Club (BSC) at the Egypt Cottage last Saturday had a great turnout. Congratulations to the four lucky raffle prize winners: Laurie Vicquelin (brand new Bellavista Juventud FC shirt as sponsored by the BSC), Conrad Scott (old strip signed by Nobby Solano), Michelle Taylor (Peru national shirt, also signed by Nobby Solano), and Chris Jewitt (Crunchie Easter Egg!).
The Egypt Cottage
From ticket sales, donations and raffle, a GRAND TOTAL OF £1318 has been raised. A cheque was presented by the BSC President, Doug Paterson, and accepted on behalf of Bellavista Juventud FC by special guests, the parents of the FC President Father Joe Plumb.
