Our On-line Raffle is here
An African Hamper could be yours
As a new initiative we have set up an ‘online’ fundraiser for those who would like to enter. There will be a hamper full of African goodies for the lucky winner. The hamper will include lovely African ornaments, jewellery and brightly coloured wraps. All items are from Kenya.
To take part please donate £5.00 per person (copy link below) stating your name and the word ’hamper’. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name to say you have taken part and donated your £5.00. There will be a draw of all names on 1 August 2020 when the winner will be announced. If you live too far away to be hand delivered, please do not worry as the hamper will be despatched by parcel post. If the lucky winner wanted to remain anonymous we will not announce your name, so just mention that in the email.
Thank you and good luck everyone.
The Prudential Bike Ride
As the Prudential Ride London cannot go ahead because of Covid, the Mayor of London and Prudential are keen it should still go ahead but it can be done where people live. So I have signed up for the free cycle one and Steph and I are hoping to do around 30 miles – maybe a bit more, but depends on how much practice I can get in beforehand!

Earlier in 2020 our Fundraising programme got off to a great start with a record breaking Curry Night at Monsoon’s Indian Restaurant in Rustington. Just over £1000 was raised by our generous diners.
This was shortly followed by a wonderful evening in Vienna, provided by Jacob Keet and his friends as we enjoyed music from Viennese composers.
Just before the Lock Down Karyn held her popular Swop Shop and the Parish Church shared funds raised at their Winter Warmer.
Everything else has been put on hold – we hope the word is “Postponed” rather than “Cancelled”.
The Great Sale of Everything might now be the Great Autumn Sale of Everything, Chris and Maddy are still hoping to climb Mount Snowdon in May 2021.
Watch out for the Kenyan recipe competition. Information will be in the August Newsletter

Christmas Tree Festival at Littlehampton United Church
The Third Annual Christmas Tree Festival, hosted by Littlehampton United Church, proved a huge success. Running simultaneously with our Christmas Sale.
The trophy for the best tree was awarded to Arun Care for their imaginative “Snowman” tree. On the Friday evening the U3A Ukuleles and choir led Carol Singing – followed by yet more mince pies and Coffee.
The total raised for Charity funds was over £1100
Thank you to everyone who supported.
