We regularly hold events to raise money for our charity and to raise awareness of the challenges facing people with a sensory loss. Recently we had a charity auction that featured lots including sporting experiences and family attraction tickets, as well as a wine tasting evening hosted with Helen Jones Wines. Thank you to everyone who supported these events.
Below are details of the events that we have still to come in 2017:
Race Night - Saturday 18th November
Hosted by Walthew volunteer Mike Litchfield, our annual Race Night fundraiser is always a great night out. Entry is £5 and doors open at 7pm on Saturday 18th November, entry includes a hot buffet. You'll also get the chance to bet on the races and win some fabulous prizes!
Christmas Fair - Saturday 2nd December
We will be having a Christmas Fair between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 2nd December. If you would like to sell your festive items then tables are £7.50 each, entry is free for the public. Mince pies and bacon butties will be available.
Christmas Carol Service - Sunday 10th December
Our annual Carol Service will be held from 3pm on Sunday 10th December, with support once again from Rev. David Brewster and our friends at St Matthews Church, Edgeley. There will be mince pies and mulled wine available, and a British Sign Language (BSL) interpeter.
Our team regularly do talks across Stockport about the work of our charity, and we would be happy to book a date in to speak to your group or organisation. Please contact Dan Oliver using the details above if you would like to organise a talk.
Each year we are delighted to receive the support of businesses from across Stockport, including those who participate in our annual blind bowling tournament and those who have one of our charity collection boxes. We would particularly like to thank Booth Ainsworth, a long term supporter of ours who raise money through regular dress down days and cake sales - over the years they have helped to raise more than £7000 for us!
