Various projects form social highlights on our yearly calendar and help us to create additional income streams.

Our yearly Summer Fête (Kermis) is a highlight on our social calendar. We also host other fundraising events so don’t miss out on our annual Golf day and Bowls day.

Come and bring along a friend, and by doing so, you will help support a good cause.

If you cannot attend one of the functions, consider making a donation or sponsorship instead, or volunteer to help us with the preparations.
