Following this year's amazing total raised by Haddenham's Hopefuls for Relay for Life, a cancer research fundraising event, we are planning to take part again next July.
Just to remind you, Relay for Life was a 24-hour team walk which took place last July 4/5th. The whole event raised over £100,000 for Cancer Research UK and, with our friends' recent cancer experiences, we wanted to continue to support this worthwhile charity.
The fundraising is done throughout the year and we are already planning our next events.
Firstly we are holding a family Christmas Shopping and Activity Afternoon in the Youth and Community Centre on Sunday 6th December, from 2.00 — 5.00pm. With many well known stalls, Body Shop, Chocoholics, Usborne Books as well as the wares of some lovely local ladies who make arts and craft things, from jewellery, glass ornaments to beautiful wooden plaques.
We also plan to run some children's themed activities and Santa will be in residence in the afternoon, from 3.00 — 4.00pm. There will also be a tombola and a raffle and, of course, plenty of refreshments.
Everyone extremely welcome — free admission.
The second event is to provide a kick-start to your New Year's fitness regime, with a Zumba session in the village hall on Sunday 10th January, starting at 10.00am. Entrance is £10 in advance, or on the door, to include a raffle ticket for a 'goody draw'.
