Well and truly launched!

Launch evening guests.

The launch event on July 20th at Okewood Village Hall was a huge success. The hall was packed to capacity as everyone enjoyed a wonderful evening together with a delicious meal and music from 'Men in Sheds' - the band's lead singer Chris also headed the auction, which along with a silent auction, a raffle and general donations raised over £2,500 - a great start towards our target of £20,000.

The auction prompted some fevered bidding thanks to generous offers from local people such as an Opera lesson and a month of flower arrangements.

Huge thanks are due to Linda and Pam who cooked our wondeful food, all our teenager helpers who served, Chris and his band, and most of all to all who attended making it such a warm community evening.

Our next event will be a barn dance - more to follow on this, but in the mean time we will have a stall at Oakwood, Ockley and Forest Green Flower Show on Aug 10th. Hope to see you there!
