Shirley Boland is a very brave woman, who like John Adams in 2014, decided to shave off all her hair in order to raise funds for our charity at our Summer Fundraising Weekend on the 19th of July. This alone, managed to raise more than £850 so helping us to achieve the total sum of £2,376.75.
A huge thank you once again to Shirley, to our supporters and to the Steamboat Tavern for hosting.
Below are the before and after images!
Well, what a weekend we had between the 18th-19th of July at our Summer Fundraising Weekend at The Steamboat Tavern!
We got up to all kinds of fun! Day 1 showcased an evening of 3 brilliant local acts: Red Flag 77, Suspect Device and Casual Nausea who had everyone up, dancing and enjoying themselves. We also had a booze raffle, people in the stocks, yummy food and more! Equally, Day 2 was just as much fun, with our bouncy castle, a bungee run, boat-making and the raingutter regatta, henna tattoos, a head shave, raffles, cake stall and more!
Thanks to everyone’s overwhelming support, we have blown last year’s total out of the water! According to our current calculations, the grand total so far is £2,376.75. A huge thank you once again to everyone involved: the bands/musicians/performers, our supporters, our trustees and volunteers and finally, the Steamboat Tavern for hosting such a great weekend.

Shirley Boland is a very proud and dedicated supporter, and after the success of John Adams’ head shave last year at our first Summer Fundraising Weekend, she has decided to do the same to raise money for us.
She will be shaving all of her hair off on the 19th of July, at the second day of the Summer Fundraising Weekend.

Hello everyone. This is the first blog/news post. This is just the start of many exciting things.
Well, the BIG annual first event has now finished, the money has been collected, counted and put into the bank. The tables have been cleared, left over cakes eaten, Fanny’s hair has been swept away and we hope everyone involved in organising and running the event have had some time to recover! So, I guess you all want to know how much we raised?! Well a massive thank you to EVERYONE for their kind generosity as the final total was a whopping £1,390.80. This amount does not include the incredible amount raised by Fanny alone. Fanny’s event raised £918.00 and he is still collecting!! We thought we were being silly hoping we could raise £1,500, well… With your support we reached this target and beyond. So from all the trustees, a big huge THANK YOU! xox
