LATEST NEWS :
I am very sad to report that one of our longest serving supporters died just after Christmas after a long illness.
Liz Webb started the 100 Club in 1990 and ran it for 29 years contributing well over £10,000 to the running of the Youth Groups.
Liz, Pete and their family moved to Barford in the 80s and threw themselves into village life. Pete also supported Scouts as Chairman and by obtaining grants for equipment. When their son David was paralysed in a motor bike accident they worked at supporting him back to health and living an independent life.
Liz and Pete then continued to help raising funds for Spinal Research. Liz moved into a smaller house in Warwick after Pete died, but still attended many village functions despite problems with mobility in recent years.
A lovely lady who will be much missed.
Barford Drama group contributed over £2,500 from “Not the Music Hall”. Thanks to Wendy Barlow and her team for a very enjoyable evening and a significant contribution to the funds. Our next fund-raising event will be a Quiz Night and Supper at the Memorial Hall on Saturday February 9th. See poster for more details.
I am pleased to report that we now have some more help in this area and will be working to make applications to several grant giving bodies in 2019
We have £42,000 available for the Y&CC project at the start of 2019 with a magnificent £8,400 being raised in the last quarter of 2018.
The total amount raised since the start of the project is just over £60,000, out of which we have paid ca. £12,000 for the storage unit (incl. foundation and shelving units) and just under £6,000 in legal fees (lease), planning applications and architect's fees.
