Fundraising & Social Events

Details of some of the events organised by Club members.

For our fund raising we concentrate on a small number of major projects that have become well established in the local calendar:

  • Almost The Donkey Derby  - Spring Bank holiday
  • Orchard Day in the Farnham Common Community Orchard
  • Children in Need (Pudsey Bear) at local schools
  • Fund raising for Christmas food parcels
  • And many others to support local causes

For many years we organised the Beeches Run in late autumn. Recently one of our members and his wife have entered marathons and raised funds through sponsorship.

We also had a Spring concert at Caldicott School and we hope to replace this with a new event in the near future

     These are supplemented by numerous social events and trips for Club members, partners and friends some of which can viewed opposite.
