2017/2018 Fundraising Events
GARDEN PARTY - Held on Sunday June 26th
Thank you yo all who supported the day, especially the helpers. It was the most successful yet and at this stage it seems to have raised a whopping £1,900.00!
It was helped by the glorious weather and the large numbers that called in for bacon butties, coffee an cakes, cream teas but also bought from our stalls.
Concert on Friday 11th May, 7.30pm at St Paul's Church, Canford Heath, BH17 9DW.
It was another cracking concert thanks to the wonderful performers who captivated the audience. We raised £1,200 in donations on the evening plus another £400 from those who were unable to attend. Thank you all so much for your generosity!
Thank you to all those who supported this event - to those who supplied the wonderful raffle prizes and those who donated but couldn't come. It was a great evening, a lot of fun and the buffet was enjoyed by everyone!
Thank you too to our helpers and particularly to John B who quiz-mastered so efficiently and with such good humour!
The total raised was more than £1,600.00 because Barclays Bank provided us with £ for £ matched funding - thanks to Sue for that! All in all then, it was a very successful evening.
We raised over £650.00 with our silent auction in November. Thank you to everyone who made a bid and thank you to Ali for organising it. It will pay the cost of the flights for two and is a great start to our campaign to bring 16 children from the affected regions over here in July 2018 for their recuperative care.
