The Bailey Drew Memorial Cup Challenge

 

In 2014, the Corby Glen Sheep Fair Committee wanted to do something to celebrate Bailey's life and his love of sheep fair weekend. 
 
With the kind permission of Bailey's parents, the Bailey Drew Memorial Cup Challenge was created.
 
The Sheep Fair Committee have decided that this year the challenge will be to stay dry with a Tug-Of-War over the River Glen.
 
This years challengers are: 
  • The Woodhouse Arms, Corby Glen
  • The March Hare Tea Room, Corby Glen
  • The Fighting Cocks, Corby Glen
  • The Royal Oak, Swayfield
  • The Cholmeley Arms, Burton Coggles
So come along and cheer all competitors on, and remember it's all a bit of 'fun'
 
 
 
BAILEY
 
Bailey tragically lost his life
very suddenly in May 2014 to
sudden arrhythmic
death syndrome (SADS).
Not only did this devastate
Bailey's family and friends
but it hit the whole village
really hard.
 
Bailey, an avid football player,
attended The Corby Glen
Primary School and then
graduated to The Charles Read
High School (also in Corby Glen).
 
Young, fit and healthy, his death was as unexpected as it was shocking.
 
Since Bailey's death we have raised money for a defibrillator which is now installed outside the local Methodist Chapel in the centre of the village.
 
At this year's fair we had a stand raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). If you would like more information about SADS or would like to know what you can do to raise money for this very worthy cause please visit:
