Charity Race Night For Injured Supporter

Manchester City fan, Chris Faulkner, suffered a fractured skull on Derby Day and his life was saved by a police officer. Chris lost much blood and underwent brain surgery during which he had part of his skull removed. He has to have another operation to have a steel plate fitted and will be off work for a long time.

Chris and his family have understandably gone through a torrid time and the injury will have lasting effects for Chris who will no longer be able to play sport or fly. Chris is a huge character at his local Prestwich & Whitefield Supporters Branch and Prestwich & Whitefield's very own Don Price is organising a race night for Chris' benefit this Saturday 19 May.

It is hoped that Chris will be attending this event. All City supporters and their families are welcome at the event, the full details of which are below:-

Date: Saturday 19 May 2007

Venue: Our Ladies Of Grace Social Club
Fairfax Road

Time Of First Race: 6:30pm

For further details on this very worthy event please contact Don on If you are unable to attend but want to make a donation please e-mail Don for details.

We hope this event is a great success and wish Chris and his family well for the future.
