"Our sincere thanks go to all the staff at the Whitehall Garden Centre at Woodborough, for offering us the opportunity to raise some money for our charity - the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale Branch of Cancer Research UK. To everyone who was there on Saturday 16th July, a huge thank you for making the day so successful. We met some really lovely people as they shopped and not only did we raise £128.40, but we had a ball as well." ... See MoreSee Less
On Saturday 9th June at The Ship Inn, Upavon James undertook a head shave, he was a bit nervous, the pub was crowded and with everyone cheering him on, at 5.45 the hairdresser began to shave.
In no time at all the deed was done and his hair was on the floor. It was generally agreed that he looked 10 years younger!!
James was doing this in memory of his Mum, who died fairly recently, and he wanted the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale branch of Cancer Research, to be one of the beneficiaries.
We received the sum of £300 from sponsorship that James had, together with £52 from the sale of CRUK wrist bands. Our thanks go to James of course, and also to the staff at The Ship Inn for hosting this event.
With Christmas well and truly over it’s time for us to get back to business and focus on the events that we want to put on this year. We have our tried and trusted fund raisers which have served us well, but are also looking out for something a bit different, but who knows yet what that will be? What we can give you are the events that are already planned, so make a note on your calendar and you won’t miss them.

From our name you can see that we cover a very wide sprawling rural area, from Pewsey out to the Collingbournes and Tidworth, on to Figheldean and Durrington, round to Larkhill and Shrewton taking in Stonehenge and on to Woodborough.
Our sole aim is to raise as much money as possible to fund research into finding cures for the various forms of Cancer.
