Meetings

FUND RAISING

The Fund Raising sub-committee meets once per month to discuss and to organise the various events we run throughout the year. The three main events, Golf Day in May, Vinefest in July and the Heavy Horse Show in September, are described in more detail in the 'Upcoming Events' and 'Calendar pages'.

The following are some of our other regular projects:

 

Christmas Collection

We are very grateful that Sainsbury’s, Tesco and M&S allow us (and other charities) to use their premises for collections at Christmas. We thank them and all their patrons who donate so willingly. This is a significant source of income for our various projects.

 

Calendar

We created our first calendar for 2017, with Sevenoaks sights captured by the Sevenoaks Camera Club and the months sponsored by local businesses. This was successful enough to warrant a second attempt for 2018, with a further dozen excellent photos of the area. Do contact us if you are interested in the 2019 version later in the year.

 

Easter eggs

Another popular fund raiser is the raffling of Easter Eggs at upwards of a dozen pubs in the area that voluntarily sell the tickets for us.

 

Fetes

We have organised the Chevening Summer Fete three times, so far!

 

Sevenoaks Fireworks Night

Our friends at Round Table have been organising the very successful street parade and Fireworks Display at Sevenoaks School for years and we help by providing the catering (ably helped by the Scouts).

 

Otherwise we help other community and fund raising activities where we can, including helping at the Kent Show and the Wrotham Steam Rally, tin-rattling for Mencap and for Marie Curie and the list goes on!

And we are always looking for new ideas, and more helpers.... if you are even vaguely interested, do get in touch to find out more.
