Following the Avenue’s achievement of reaching the First Round Proper, the nominated charities; Marie Curie Bradford Hospice and Joint Activities and Motor Education Service (JAMES) were presented with £1000 cheques from chief executive Bob Blackburn and chairman Dr John Dean before the Blue Square Bet North home fixture against Droylsden.
