Santa Drops By ...
Santa was kind enough to give up some of his preparation time in December to say `hello’ to his many fans and help us collect money for our Christmas appeal. As well as appearing at our usual venues, he took the time to travel round the streets of Thatcham bringing festive cheer and a big Ho,Ho,Ho to those who turned out to meet him!
The photo shows Santa admiring Christmas decorations at one of his stops (and getting a few ideas for decorating his workshop, no doubt!)
Thanks to your generosity, we were able to deliver 100 store vouchers to local families to help them at what can be an expensive time of year.
.. and some extra cheer!
To make Christmas a little happier for children spending Christmas in the refuge, we made up stockings using donated toys and funds. Here are some of the thank you letters we received.
Lion Margot Payne presided over her first meeting and one of her first duties was to present a cheque to West Berkshire Homeless charity.
Fancy some fabulous music from Newbury's own Brass Band?
Then come and spend an afternoon at the fete, where you will hear
Watership Brass (The Newbury Town Band)
They will be performing a mixture of good old fashioned brass band music plus modern arrangements of family favourites.
Why not have a cup of tea, a slice of cake, listen and relax!
