Fundraising is a crucial element in ensuring our charity survives. Our volunteers and supporters put their heart and soul in to every event they organise.
The Mayor and Youth Mayor opened our Christmas Fair in November
Quiz Night at the HomeGuard Club
We held our Annual Christmas Fair at the Center on Saturday 26th November and what a great event it was. The Mayor of Oldham, Councillor Elaine Garry arrived together with the Mayor's Consort Councillor Pete Davis and Oldham's Youth Mayor Hamra Hanif - Ali. Our very grateful thanks go to the members of the Fundraising Group who worked so hard on the run up to the event and on the day itself
On Friday 4Th November the Fundraising Group organised another Quiz night which was once again hosted by Geoff Iles. Together with the raffle the evening raised £244. Our Thanks go to Geoff and Carole, Ronnie and Mags for collecting the entrance fees and selling raffle tickets.
