The Haddenham Village Fete is not only a wonderful community event, it also helps to raise funds for local good causes.
The Fete committee has recently announced its distribution of funds from this year's event, and here are the details:
The following will all receive a donation from the money raised, which this year exceeded £4,500
- Hunca Munca for a quiet reading area
- Haddenham Cycle Training
- Village CPR Training to be arranged through Heartbeat Haddenham
- The Youth Cafe
- Haddenham Community Library
- Haddenham Parochial charities
- Iain Rennie (currently looking after fourteen Haddenham residents)
- Mobility Vehicle Scheme, to provide a wheelchair accessible vehicle for Haddenham.
The organising committee once again extend their sincere thanks to everyone who helped and contributed to this significant achievement.
If you would like to apply for funds for a Haddenham-based charitable organisation in furture years, please feel free to email Tim Armitt at: firstname.lastname@example.org
