Mars Refuel

Could I please ask everyone to ‘Like’ (facebook) the ‘Mars Refuel Drink Fund Entry’ that I have placed.  
There are a couple of typos –  Buoyancy aids as opposed to life jackets, and we only have one member over 70 as opposed to members.  I have asked them to correct.
This could potentially nett the group a £1000, £500 or £250 to help update its canoeing equipment.  Every bit helps!!!!

Fund Raising a New Approach

Dear Parents

From our AGM you will be aware that our group struggles annually for sufficient funds to meet its obligations with regards to rent, electricity, water, insurance, district fees, training, materials for weekly section meetings, etc. I am sure there are more to list.

A generous few members of our group and committee each year volunteer their free time to run the bingo events, Crock Smash, and Christmas Post. We also hire our marquee to raise additional funds – again a few volunteers help with this. The group has historically always chased parents to assist with events
