Petersfield Branch – Fundraising Events

Petersfield Branch news and Forthcoming Events

2017 is our DIAMOND JUBILEE year:

Petersfield branch has just turned 60.

Quite a milestone to celebrate and so we celebrated in style on the evening of September 11th. We are very proud that we are the best-performing Save the Children branch in the UK: quite an achievement! We invited all our helpers and volunteers, sponsors and friends for refreshments in the stunning Tithe Barn at Ditcham.

Recent events:

We held the popular Bridge Day

on September 11th at the Tithe Barn, Ditcham.

It was a fantastic success with many satisfied players and some with some amazing raffle prizes.

 

 

We are also delighted to announce that Prue Scurfield who has been working with the Branch for the past 40 years was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours and she collected her British Empire Medal (BEM) in Winchester on the 11th September. She sported it for our diamond jubilee celebrations that evening! 

We are very grateful to the General Wine Company for sponsoring our celebrations and to The Great British Cake Shop for the special 60th anniversary cake.

 


Two big successes and some advance information of other events this year:

Saturday 21st October: POP-UP SHOP featuring some designer clothes, ladies and men’s wear, with some great bargains to be had!
