Gill Marks: January 2016
Here is a date for your diaries! After a very successful Supper Dance in December, we have decided to go with it again. We raised over £900 for the Karibuni Trust and the Methodist Church's 'All We Can Fund'. Both charities benefit disadvantaged children and communities. Wendover Memorial Hall and The John Wheeler Band have been booked for Saturday 26th November 2016, so see you there! May I take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all those who helped with the catering and bar — I will be in touch! For anybody wishing to join the team, please contact me (Gill Marks) on 01296 748659.
