The Old Market Inn on Chapel Row in Douglas, may be the smallest pub in the Isle of Man, but it is one with the biggest heart when it comes to supporting the Southern 100 Supporters Fund.
At a social gathering, Dave Ratcliffe handed over a cheque for £850.00 to Southern 100 Club Chairman, Phil Taubman. A similar amount was presented to Debbie Barron of the Hyperbaric Chamber.
The staff and patrons of the ‘Market’ commenced supporting the Southern 100 Supporters fund in 2003, raising £290.00.
By 2005 they had topped the £1,000.00 and the total raised including this year’s fantastic amount now stands at a magnificent £12,100.00!
Chairman, Phil Taubman, thanked Dave and their customers for the excellent support over the last twelve months and said the club were deeply indebted to all involved in the fund raising. He also thanked them for the their hospitality on the evening and gave a special mention to Jayne Devereaux who kindly supplied the buffet which was very well received!
