Helping raise funds for a local Womens & Child refuge

  • Posted

We were delighted to help another local Bowls club during the 2016 season in their effort to raise funds for their charity.

Aveley Bowls Club are dedicated to supporting a local women’s and child refuge and have been organising several events over the last season. Linda Mills from the club recently emailed  a lovely thank you to F Barnes which read as follows:

“As you helped with donations during the year for the Aveley Bowls Club Charity, i’m just contacting you to say a big thank you for helping us raise £1600 during the year. We have been in touch with the refuge & awaiting their reply as to what we can buy with the money. I was thinking of televisions & computers but I think before that they are in need of basic items there are so many things they need we just did not realise how desperate they are in need of funding.

Our next project is to organise a Christmas Party for the children & we are currently in the process of approaching different supermarkets.

It was with your help that we were able to raise this much money enabling us to help them so once again a BIG THANK YOU to all involved”

Linda has asked that if anyone is interested in supporting this charity they can contact Joanne Druce at F Barnes either by email to: joanne.druce@fbarnes.co.uk or by calling 01708 745183.

Well done to Linda and all the members of Aveley Bowls Club from all at F Barnes. We look forward to assisting you all again next year.
