IN September 2011 the Peake Villa committee made the decision to enter two teams (u17 and u16) at the prestigious Keele International Cup taking place at Keele University in the UK on July 24th to July 29th 2012.
Kevin Cummins took on the role as trip coordinator and quickly established a Trip Fund Raising Committee comprising of parents from both teams. The committee members of Patricia Fogarty, Susan Garrett, Veronica Moore, Kevin Cummins, Jim Lennon and John O’Connell organised Table Quiz Nights, Music Nights, Bag Packs and Car Parks to raise the funds necessary to cover the travel, accommodation and food costs for five days in the UK. Peake Villa would like to thank all the people of the parish who contributed and participated in the fund raising events, the funds raised enabled this trip to proceed.
