We will be having raffle and an auction to include 2 tickets to each of the 100 m on Sunday 6th August, 200 m on Thursday 10 August and 400 m on Tuesday 8th August finals to include overnight accommodation in London that evening”.

It has been put together at short notice but we believe it will be well supported. The August athletics in London will be the last time we see Usain Bolt in action so his appearance at our dinner in his and the teams honour will be quite an achievement”.
