Our Great Big 2017 Garden Gig

We had a fantastic fundraising Garden Gig last night.
crowd
Over 100 people of all ages came to enjoy the music and perform on a beautiful sunny Wednesday night. The evening started with the Uka-ladies sing-a-long which was great fun, then the very talented pupils from Graveney music department entertained us with classical music, jazz, and songs from soloists and a wonderful new girl’s choir. Finally the FAB FWB (Furzedown Wind-Breakers) treated us to their debut performance to close the show.
There was a delicious BBQ featuring beer-basted chicken (thanks to Alan Feast’s Big Green Egg) followed by strawberries.
It was a great success – thanks to everyone who came – we raised nearly £1000 to help local causes like St George’s Hospital, South London MNDA, Furzedown Project minibus and Furzedown Youth Club.
Looking forward to more fun at the Big Day Out on 17 June!

BDO 2013 – one to remember!

it was amazing that so many people braved the weather to support our community festival, with locally produced beer and bread; crafts and therapies; as well as cake making competitions, sporting activities and charity stalls like ours and a great line up of local bands, music and dancing.

 

The organisers at Furzedown community network did a really great job! Events like this are so important and are a great place for us raise money for our three local charities – MNDA, St George’s Hospital and The Furzedown Project.

FACE is now supporting Furzedown Project

We are really looking forward to raising money and supporting The Furzedown Project on Moyser Road.

For nearly 40 years The Project on Moyser Road has been helping to overcome social isolation amongst older people in our area, by providing a meeting place and lots of activities like swimming, crafts and yoga. As well as befriending the housebound, home visits, assisted transport and day trips out. 

Supporting local people between 60 and 95+ the Project is open 10am – 4pm weekdays, the Project is run with 2 full time staff, 2 part time staff and lots of volunteers. 

With so many elderly people a defibrillator would be a great asset to have available if someone has a heart attack and we hope to raise enough money this year to buy one.
