☀️ Summer Fete 2024 😎

SATURDAY 8th JUNE — 2:00-5:00pm

With just a month remaining until our eagerly anticipated Summer Fete Fundraiser, preparations are well underway, and we’re excited to invite you to be a part of this special event!

Would you like to help? Here’s how you can:

We’re gratefully accepting donations of full and in-date bottles of wine or spirits, as well as any unwanted, unopened gifts, homemade cakes and boxes of chocolate. Your contributions will help make our raffle and gift stalls a huge success!

Consider purchasing a ticket for the event, even if you’re unable to attend. By doing so, you’ll still be eligible to enter our Door Draw and have the chance to win some fantastic prizes. Additionally, don’t forget to grab a Summer Raffle ticket for your chance to win big!

Join us on the day of the event for a fun-filled day of activities, entertainment, and delicious treats! We’d love to see you there, and if you’re able, why not volunteer and lend a hand in running one of our stalls? Your support as a volunteer is invaluable and greatly appreciated. If you’re interested in volunteering, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff.

Together, let’s make our Summer Fete Fundraiser a roaring success. Remember, our fundraisers enable us to continue to keep our session costs as low as possible, ensuring that our services remain accessible to all members of the community. Our Summer Fete is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year.

Thank you for your ongoing support and generosity!

Please note: As usual, there will NOT be a 12:45pm session on the day of the Summer Fete. We encourage all our members to support us at the event and enjoy the festivities!

🏃‍♀️‍➡️ Alexandra Reichl Runs in the 2024 London Marathon – Update 🏃‍♀️

Congratulations to Alexandra Reichl for her exceptional achievement in the 2024 London Marathon!

Alex’s unwavering dedication and determination shone brightly as she conquered the course. We are thrilled to announce that Alex completed the marathon in an impressive 4 hours 36 minutes.
