Lazonby Spring Craft & Shopping Fair
Big thanks to all who came along to the Fair on 29th April. A grand total of £605 was raised on the day.
Campaign to replace Heat Pump launched
A new heat pump costs in the region of £15,000 and so we are launching a fundraising campaign for £7,500 to match funding we already have. We will be looking out for possible grant money but as well we would like to ask for your help in supporting various fundraising events we have planned for the next 6 months. So if you have any ideas or could help in any way then please get in touch. And watch this space for more info.......
Thanks to everyone who came along on Sat 5th - we had a marvellous turnout and the weather wasn't too bad either. Even sunburn was reported!! Our special guest dancers teams were wonderful and the cake donations overwhelming.
