Wednesday 6th December 2017 - 11:00am
One of our residents wanted to organise a Bric
a Brac in aid of St Barnabas Hospice House which is such a lovely thing to do.
We are also organising a raffle to be drawn at the same time as well.
If you are not able to come along on Wednesday 6th December
at 11:00 all is not lost! We are going to place the raffle tickets and a
collection pot in the restaurant from today – The tickets are £1 a strip,
please do remember to take a strip and place your name on the remaining strip ready for the draw on Wednesday.
Some of the raffle prizes already kindly donated from local
businesses are: A 2 course lunch or dinner at the Castle in Bramber, 2 tickets for Christmas Carol from This is my Theatre and Upper Beeding pharmacy, One Stop Computer store a keyboard and mouse, some goodies from Nisa and Beeding News in Upper Beeding and a hamper from Swains Farm shop.
Having had to pull out of last year’s South Down Trek due to
injury (well done Zoë, Catherine, Andrew, Mike & Sarah who completed it!)
Alan has entered this year’s event and has decided to run the route.
It goes without saying what wonderful work St Barnabas House
does and how much it costs to provide their care and skills to members of the
community when they are in such need.
Every penny raised in fundraising goes directly to the
running of the ‘Outstanding’ (CQC Rated) facility which still receives no
government funding at all.
So if you are able to support Alan on his Trek by making a
donation it would be greatly appreciated.
Catherine one of our Trainied Nurses and two of her friends Louise and Libbyare walking 13.1 miles, in pink, toraise money for this amazing cause. The main reason we are doing this isbecause we currently have friends with cancer, and we wanted to do somethingpractical to show our support.
