    Grand Auction

    Thank you to all those who donated items for our auction this year.
    We had a busy weekend collecting items on Friday and getting them all catalogued for Saturday

    The day itself was very busy and thanks go to our Auctioneer, the band of people who helped display each item, collect monies, help in the kitchen, sell catalogues etc.

    We couldn’t have done it without a well oiled team effort.
    The final figure raised was £1399.00 which has helped to clear our Access for All account – a project which cost in the region of £170,000!

    Well done everyone.

    Charity lunches

    Thank you to all those who have supported our monthly Saturday lunches which this year have raised £1631.00.
    Eight charities have each received £100 and £831 has helped fund our youth group.
    These will commence in February next year and we look forward to your continued support.
