Our fundraising evening on 24th March went very well, we are looking like we will smash our target as we are looking at a projected raised sum of £1700+
Our main aim for this year is to raise enough funds to provide a Defibrillator for Wyke Square to benefit any resident who may need to use this vital piece of possible life saving equipment. These vital pieces of equipment have a starting price of anywhere from £700 upwards and then their is the cost of the housing unit which is about another £700, when we manage to raise enough funds to have this in place we will hopefully be in a position to the hold some first aid training within the social club for any member of the community who wishes to have basic first aid training and training on using the defibrilltor too even though it will talk you through the procedure.
Our Secretary Jo Taylor along with long time club member Jane Hoskins as doing a sponsored dryathon for Lent, No alcohol shall pass their lips for 40 days and 40 nights, it starts on Wednesday 14th February and runs until Sunday 1st April, sponsorship for is in the main front bar. (Currenlty standing at around £500+). Pleased to say they both managed it and enjoyed on a drink on Sunday, well done to both ladies.
