You COMPLETELY AMAZING PEOPLE!! We had a blast tonight. The Barley Mow was heaving, we ran out of tables and chairs, the curry was DELICIOUS and everyone was lusciously lovely. We came into tonight with a £500 fundraising target in our heads. You helped us raise just over £940!!! All for local people and causes. Can't thank everyone enough.
Lots of love to you all. Especially to the Barley Mow for donating £250 and to Carmen and Kuzax Cleaning for donating the first prize of £100 - a prize which our winning team very kindly donated back to us. Thank you to Owen Evans for Quizmastering, to all at the Barleys for being completely brilliant as ever, and to Emma and Carmen for your help in making sense of potential chaos.
Let's liven it up with a hearty curry and a testing quiz. So put Friday 20th January in your diaries, please!
The luscious and lovely landlord of The Barley Mow, Foxy the Fox, has agreed to host the quiz and to be our master of questions. All you need to do is find 5 friends to join you, and pay the measly sum of £3 each which guarantees you a night of fun.
If you want to make more of a night of it, then the winter food deal of the decade is there for the taking. Just £5 a head and you get home-made chicken or veggie curry and rice.
There's no exciting way to put this, but yes - we held our AGM. It was a RIOT. ;-)
You may want to have a read of the Chairman's Report which contains my ramblings about our year, reflecting on who we've helped and where we're going.
