our charity for 2018

This year we all agreed at the AGM in March, that we would raise in memory of our lost beloved member Les Arnold, who sadly passed away in 2017.

His favourite charity was the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

Les contributed greatly to our group over the years and there will be more about him on this site coming soon.


AGM Cheque Presentations 2018

Our three nominated charities for 2017 were presented each with £1,000 in March 2018! The charities were RDA Cottesbrooke (riding for the disabled), FMS Nene (Fibromyalgia sufferers) and The Hope Centre (help the homeless). 

We also had a great night discussing the group's past year of activities and what's in store for the year ahead! 

Other events & celebrations!

Our main big news is that 2018 is our 25th Anniversary! At the time of writing, Sandie is busy collecting information and planning for the big day ahead...which is Saturday the 1st September, at the Church hall.
We hope to have as many past and present charity reps popping in as well as members to come and join us in our celebrations, having raised a mammoth £150,000.00 over the past 25 years for local great causes!

As explained at the AGM, outside caterers will be drafted in to do a BBQ on site and all food (including vegetarian), will be provided at £12 per head, partners are welcome! There will be various meat barbecued, a salad bar and three choices of dessert. Please bring your own drink and alcohol is allowed. Children will be charged less of course if you wish to bring them but please let Sandie know in advance. If you are a current or past member then please contact Sandie by no later than the end of April to confirm your place, and she will let everyone know when she will be collecting the money from you.
