CVM Christmas Cracker

A big thank you to everyone who watched, shared and donated on our Christmas Cracker Night. 

We smashed our target of 10k by 10pm, which meant legend Al Weller shaved his beaut of a beard off and Nathan and Carl nearly made themselves sick with all the challenges.

You can still donate to cheer us on over the next month. Thanks again. 


You can catch up on all the action or check out our highlights.
