Village Hall ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal – next phase (update)

The new chairs arrived on the 24th October.  

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored a chair so far.  Chairs are still available to sponsor

*********************************************

The fundraising activities were launched at the August Social Saturday and we’ve already raised £780.00.

Thank you to all those who gave so generously.

We still need to raise about £2,000.00 to be able to purchase 60 matching chairs.

***********************************************

The next phase of the Village Hall refurbishment is the replacement of our increasingly wobbly chairs.

Village Hall – ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal.

To do this we need to raise serious funds.  We have received a grant of £500.00 from the Parish Council, but we need to buy at least 60 chairs at £45 each.

The Village Hall has recently purchased a small number of toddle size chairs and a low table useful for children’s arts and craft work.

We’ll be holding fundraisers, but also asking village organisations, businesses and individuals if they will support us by sponsoring a chair, part of a chair, or even more than one chair.

The fundraising activities will be launched at the August Social Saturday on the 25th August.  We hope that we will have a chair to view on the day.
