WHAT AN AMAZING SAUSAGE AND MASH PARTY WE HAD!
and information about making much needed donations to the Hall
What an amazing evening we had on Fri 26th! It was a fantastic event with so many of you staying on to enjoy a good drink and a good chat with friends. Much fun was had by all and a delicious meal served by Maggie Archard and her team. The free beers were a real bonus! So good to see such as large turnout of our village residents to join us in celebrating our achievements to date.
Fundraising so far
As you will know, we have been granted £148,000.00 by the Big Lottery. This is fantastic, but it is conditional on us raising a further £46,600.00 by the end of March, of which £2600.00 needs to have been raised locally. We have been working hard on this and so far we have raised £32,412.00. We still have several applications pending so we are confident that we will achieve this.
Local Fundraising – within our own parish
Part of our requirement to qualify for the full £148,000.00 is that we must raise a further £2,600.00 locally. Of that, we are pretty certain we will raise £1200.00 at our concert on 14th April, so it leaves £1400.00 still to raise locally. After the Sausage and mash evening, we raised £300 worth in cash donations and have since had a further £170.00 from individuals, for all of which we are really most grateful.
This brings us to a total so far of £470.00. This is really great, but we do need to raise a little more to get there. Some of you expressed a keen interest in making a donation, so below are the details in order to do so.
Details for making a donation – 2 methods
1) Either send a donation by cheque to Dave Dunnett, 16 Swainstons Way, Dennington, Woodbridge, IP13 8DB, made out to ‘Dennington Village Hall’.
2) Or, if you would like to make a transfer directly to our account, please contact by email for the account details.
GIFT AID – Attached you will find a gift aid certificate. If you are happy to sign one and send it to us, it allows the Hall to claim an additional 25% from the Tax man for the Hall. Please fill in the details and either post it to Dave Dunnett (address above) or scan it and send it to .
Thank you all so much for considering this. Remember, it is collectively OUR hall. It is there for all of us, not just a few of us and once it has been refurbished, it will be a state-of-the-art building with amazing facilities for all of us to take advantage of. Join us, and be a part of our own collective future.
