Past Events 2009

On this page you can find out about all the fund raising events held in 2009 to raise money to defeat Cancer by the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale Branch of Cancer Research UK.

Hawk Conservancy Evening

The year began in May with a humorous and fascinating talk by Ashley Smith from The Hawk Conservancy at Weyhill, near Andover. We found out how they began, heard about their education programme for local schools and learnt about their conservation programme for birds of prey. A very informative evening that raised £570.

Bling and Bag Sale

Our Bling and Bag Sale in July provided the opportunity for friends to get together for a coffee and pick up some quality second hand bargains. We raised £300.

Goa Balti Curry Lunch

October brought the ever popular Sunday Curry Lunch which was held at The Goa Balti in Everleigh. 120 people enjoyed an excellent meal whilst raising £800. Our thanks go to the owner and his staff for all their hard work in making this event a ‘must’ in the calendar.

Figheldean Christmas Fair

Our annual Christmas Fair was again held at Figheldean Village Hall in November, with a wonderful array of stalls that provided ample opportunity to find those elusive Christmas presents. Thank you to all the stallholders who clamour to be there, it really is a hugely successful event, raising £2500.

Other Donations

We were extremely fortunate to receive many individual donations throughout the year, which made our total reach £7500.
