Quiz Night success!

Our recent Quiz-Night was a fantastic success…


Together with all our friends & neighbours in Furzedown we have raised the final amount of funds to cover the opening of a chill-out room for young people with cancer in St George’s Hospital!

Please share these great photos of the night – the quiz was a hard-fought draw between The Brilliant Friends & Tooting Muffins!

Chilling-out at FACE Garden Gig

On Friday 24 June we hosted a fantastic Garden Gig as part of the 2016 Furzedown Festival.

 After a very traumatic day it was wonderful to do something positive and relax, eat a fantastic meal and listen to live music. Alan Feast opened his beautiful garden and prepared a delicious selection of food; including beer-smoked chicken, burgers and a delicious vegetarian option with drinks – to enjoy while listening to live acoustic music.

 The evening started with talented performances from Graveney School Music department:  singers Willow and Josh, Ella on the flute, Faye on the piano, Teiba on electric guitar and Mia, Alice, Oliver and Theo on the Sax. Their teachers Ms Berry and Ms King must be very proud of these fantastic performers. Many of their friends also came to support them.

To end the evening the great singer/songwriter Gabriel Mesh played (www.gabrielmesh.com) – he is helping organise and will be appearing in this year’s Tooting Folk-Festival on 6 August which we’ll be looking forward to going to!

Bigger & better #BigDayOut

The furzedown Festival Big Day Out on 18 June was a fantastic day despite the cloudy weather; the afternoon got very busy with crowds enjoying the music and entertainment from local groups and we sold lots of Heyland & Whittle goodies, bric-a-brac and lovely plants – including the popular hand-made Furzedown window boxes.

It was a great boost to our efforts to raise funds to open a chill-out room for young people with cancer in St Georges hospital.

Furzedown 100 Club supports St George’s Chill-out room

For the last 5 years FACE have been raising money to open a ‘Chill-out room’ for young people with cancer in St Georges – but there is still a £1500 shortfall in funds.

This year, to boost the campaign FCN Furzedown Community Network) have combined forces with FACE to bring you Furzedown’s very own 100 Club. We aim to sell 100 tickets at just £2 per month and run the scheme initially for one year.

Three winning tickets will be drawn at the FCN monthly committee meeting. First prize is £50, second is £25 and third is £10; winners will be announced on the chat group.

As there are no admin fees all profits go directly to the ‘chill out room’ fund.

If you would be interested in buying a ticket (or two) please email furzedown100club@gmail.com to register your interest. Or come and sign up at either the FACE or FCN stall at the Big Day Out on June 18thOnce all numbers are sold and paid for we will start the draw.
