Fund Raising Milestones
In 2016 we celebrated our 45th year of fundraising for Cancer Research UK, which is a fantastic feat.
Over the past 10 years we raised £70,700 but in total since we began in the late 1970’s, we have raised a massive £250,000 – yes, a quarter of a million pounds!
Thank you to everyone for your continued support.
We finished last year’s programme of events on a high, with the Christmas Fair raising a fantastic sum of £2,775.
Thank you to everyone who came along, and particularly those who helped man the stalls, we couldn’t do it without you.
Once again the ever popular Curry Lunch, held on the 9th October 2016, was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in the fun, it was great to see so many familiar faces and some new ones as well. Through your generosity we raised £766, which is a fantastic sum just for eating curry, meeting up with friends and enjoying ourselves.
You can be assured that every penny of the £766 will go direct to Cancer Research UK to help fund the pioneering research that will find cures for all forms of this disease.
Fathers Day 5 A Side
Inspired no doubt by the impending Euro 2016 football tournament, the Barleycorn with Michael Bennett’s help, got the players together and collected money via sponsorship, so they could put on this fantastic fun event.
CRUK Head Office provided T-shirts, balloons, bunting, posters and sponsor forms and Philip Brown took photos on the day. There was a raffle and money was raised from an auction to cut Michael’s hair!!
It was an incredible effort by everyone concerned and you raised the magnificent sum of £891.52.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped, took part and gave so generously of their time and money to bring this about – and all organised in less than two weeks.
Spring Event 14th May
We were delighted that once again Peter Bell was able to provide the wonderful bedding plants that he has been growing for us over the past few years. This event has been very successful once again for we raised £1,675.90.
Thank you to everyone who came along and made it a very enjoyable day.
