Fundraising weekend at the Royal George Pub.
We would like to thank Clare Ashley Cox and her family for a weekend of fundraising at ‘The Royal George’ pub in Salisbury. On 3rd September they had an evening raffle, charity auction of movie and sporting memorabilia, singing and comedy. This was followed the next day by a family fun day and BBQ including pool and darts competitions. A fantastic £853 was raised.
We would like to thank the Hanwell and Northfields Rotary for a donation of £320 and the Slaughter and May Charitable Trust for their donation of £1000.
The Gillett family have kindly raised £310 for the group through a fundraising morning.
On September 24th Liam Stone and Chelsey Bardoe arranged a charity ball at the Birchwood Park Golf Centre in aid of The CHARGE Family Support Group and another charity called Cherished Memories. Liam’s younger brother has CHARGE. There was a three course meal, welcoming drinks and DJ entertainment for 150 guests. The total raised, £2,214.33, included additional money from an auction and raffle. It was an amazing evening. Thank you to everyone who came and supported the event, and to Liam and Chelsey for all their hard work.
