We’ve just finished a FACE website to help publisise our events!
There are lots of pictures and more about what we’re planning to do over the next year.
We presented the cheque to MNDA at the mayor of Wandsworth’s chambers with our MP Sadiq Khan.
Furzedown Big Day Out
On Saturday 23rd June FACE will have two stalls, selling Heyland & Whittle goods and quality bric-a-brac and plants at the Furzedown recreation ground on Chillerton Road, London SW17.
Enter our prize draw on the day to win a fabulous Hope & Glory celebratory hamper.
FACE is a group of neighbours and friends in the Furzedown area of Tooting, South London, who decided to get together and raise money for causes affecting local people close to us.
With the help of people in Furzedown, FACE raised £5,400 in 2011 to donate to two charities; Motor Neurone Disease Association and St George’s Hospital – to improve the experience of long-stay teenage cancer patients.
We aim to repeat last year’s successful stall events at the Furzedown Festival and the Moyser Road Winter market. Our Quiz night is on the 6th October – so start swotting, plus we’ll be running our grand prize draw again and hope to offer fantastic prizes like last year, such as a city break a cottage weekend, a day trip to France and meals in local restaurants.
The money raised has made a huge difference – St George’s is now planning to provide a dedicated rest and games room for young people undergoing long-term treatment and MNDA has provided therapists, specialist equipment and grants to people and their families in South London.
2012: the BIGGER challenge
This year we are hoping to raise even more money. So we are planning other exciting events which we hope many people will support.
