A group of friends from Catterick Garrison has launched a crowdfunding appeal to raise £500 to go on a drinking session.

And the money is trickling in – after four days they have received £12.

Sam Bailey, 19, says he and his four mates Rhys Woodward, 20, Lewis Fegan, 22, Mikey Garbutt, 21 and Sam Dawson, 21, are in need of a good night out.

This story continues after the adverts:


Sam, who is joining the RAF, said in the appeal: “The boys are going through a rough patch and we would all really benefit from a night out together, we all have low incoming jobs and one of are mates is a bum which needs supporting for this night out, it would be much appreciated for a naughty night out for all of us.”

He added: “We decided to put together this page since we all live apart and would really like to meet up for a night out but we all have bills to pay for and not a lot of spare cash to travel, came to the decision that the lads need a night out.”

One anonymous donator who gave £2 said: “Hope this helps boys, you all deserve it.”

But one visitor to the JustGiving page was less than impressed.

She said: “Kids are going hungry!!!”

But Sam replied: “We are going thirsty.”
