Charitable things ...
We all know that CFC is not a charity fund-raising organisation, but we have regularly been able to support good causes.
Within the coming months, instead of Children in Need, we’ve decided to support more local causes.
The Regnum Guides are seeking funding for the planned extension/refurbishment of the Guide Hall.
You’ll have seen their posters in the hall asking everyone to buy a brick.
Some of you have done so already - thank you.
To this end we plan to donate any surplus funds, (weekly subscriptions minus hall-hire fees,) accrued from 30th August until the end of 2013 to the Guides.
In order to do this we need to generate said surplus: that means an average of more than 10 bodies in attendance every week.
(There’s a hint there!)
We will present that donation at our Christmas Party to be held on Friday, 20th December.
Mark that date in your diary.
Prostate Cancer UK:
We have good reason to support this worthwhile charity, hopefully a local branch.
So, on 31st January, 2014, (when all the festivities are over,) we will hold a special evening to include a raffle and sponsored requests, much as we have done so enjoyably and successfully in the past.
We all like requests!
