Several of our credit union members make up the infamous Dukinfield Sumo Team. This band of crazy guys dress up in their inflatable suits, throughout the year, and raise money for charity. Since 2007 they have raised over £10,000 for Children in Need.
They are seen here performing their greatest hit ‘No oven no pie’, based loosely on a famous Bob Marley hit. The Sumo’s have switched their fund raising during 2014 to support the Tameside based Willow Wood Hospice and have a target of £2,014. Credit union board member, Chris Smith, seen here with ukulele, is the organiser and diet specialist for the Sumo’s. He said, ‘We have great fun and raise money at the same time. It always raises a smile when we turn up at shopping centres and places of work’.
We wish the Sumo’s success for 2014.
