Summer Fundraising Weekend!

It’s back!

As you may (or may not) know, almost a year ago now we pulled off our very first official event, which was our “family fun weekend”, hosting a gig on one night and a family fun day the following day.

But this year, we’re back… bigger and better!

On Saturday the 18th of July we will be hosting an evening of music with Red Flag 77, Casual Nausea and Suspect Device. Entry will be £5 on the door. Prepare yourself for loud music, food, fun, a booze raffle and more! Join the event on Facebook.

On Sunday the 19th of July we will be hosting a second day of fun, with an event suitable for all the family! We will have live acoustic performances, an open mic (for all ages!), kids & adults raffles, cakes & savouries stalls, a BBQ, games, dancing, music workshops and the first annual rain gutter regatta where you build your own boat (in advance or on the day) and the will be prizes up for grabs if you’ve got the best boat! See the full version of the rules here. Entry is free. Join the event on Facebook.

News Updates!

We recently held a meeting, so as promised, there is indeed news! SO BRACE YOURSELVES AS WE HAVE LOTS OF IT!

On the 23rd of April (just two weeks away!) will be a very special day for us as WE TURN ONE! Yep, it will be our first official Birthday! We will be meeting and handing over the money we have raised so far thanks to your kind donations to EACH and will be even closer to being a registered charity! We will follow this exciting day by a Birthday Bash in the late afternoon/evening. Details are still being finalised, but when they are, we will create an event ASAP and YOU ARE ALL INVITED! So make a memo of the date because we’d love to celebrate with you and shake all our loyal supporters’ hands!

In other exciting news, we can also confirm that we will be in partnership with the Beer Festival in Ipswich from 11 to 13 June.  We have all sorts of plans up our sleeves which will be explained at a further date but for now, make a note these dates because we will be there and we want to see you there too!  In fact we  would love it if some of you become involved too.   Is anyone interested in a one-off volunteer job? It will be great fun, and you can give as little or as much time as you want! If you are interested or at least want more information, email us at krissy.and.friends@gmail.com with the subject “BEER FEST VOLUNTEER” or go to our contact us page.

Finally, once again, many details still need to be sorted before we can give you the full facts but save the dates of Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19 because due to the success of last year’s gig and family day, we will be doing the same again!  On Saturday evening there will be a mix of bands with exciting raffles and yummy food while on Sunday there will be a family day with entertainment and games for all!  We hope to have an even greater success with it than last year!

We understand these are brief descriptions, but they are all still works in progress but the dates are confirmed so we figured if we gave you all an early heads up, you can jot them in your diaries and come along.  Thanks again for your continued support!
