April 2012 – Charity Update
 

2011 Charity

The 2011 charity fundraising produced a fantastic total of £1016.50.

Cheques were presented to our chosen charities ‘The Chesnut Appeal’  £500) and ‘The Inreach team’ (£516.50) at the members meeting after this years AGM.  Many many thanks to all those who contributed through the year.

2012 Charity

At the February AGM the members chose the charity ‘Ellie’s haven’ to support this year.  Ellie’s haven www.ellies-haven.org.uk is a charity that plans to offer relief to families caring round-the-clock for children suffering long term and life threatening illnesses.

Lots of people have approached me with ideas for raising funds for the charity, before you do something at a meet, please do ask the Stewards if this is OK as they may have something they wish to do instead.

I will try and keep everyone informed of monies raised, if you do something to raise funds for our charity, please  send me a report and any photos so that we can put it in the ‘Chatter’ and on the web.

The fund so far has reached £64.25 (March 2012).

Books for Sale

Judi Couch will be selling second hand books every time she goes out in the field and the proceeds will go to our charity. If you like reading, this is a good way of getting an affordable book to read.

Camping equipment sale

Do you have camping or caravanning equipment you no longer use?  You now have the opportunity of selling it at a table top sale (bring your own table) on Saturday 28th April at South View, Norris Green meet, between 10-12am.  If you would like to sell anything bring it along on the day, you pay £2 to the charity for selling your goods.

Please note! You will be responsible for removing any of your unsold equipment.

Shirley Ames – Charity Officer
