The team were given a send off by Peterborough firm XL Displays, who supplied camping equipment for the lads . A spokeswoman for the firm said:” We are massive supporters of Thorpe Hall, and when they asked if we could help, it sounded such a good thing to get involved in.” To follow the team’s progress, visit www.facebook.com/LivinOnASpare
