FUNDRAISING EVENTS 2016
2016 has been a spectacular year for fundraising with over £17,000 being raised for a variety of charitable causes.
The main events included:-
Gardens Afternoon in April supporting the East Anglian Children’s Hospices and raising £2,400.
The Paws in the Park walk was repeated this year and, once again, the sun shone, walkers and their dogs chose a length of walk to suit themselves and successfully raised £2,245 for All Hallows Hospital, Ditchingham.
Help for Heroes never fails to attract much-needed support, and the estate Clay Shoot in May was no exception with over £3,000 raised for this charity.
The travelling theatre company, Rain or Shine, performed for the second successive year in the garden in front of the Hall in July. The performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was well attended, picnics were the order of the day, and East Coast Hospice were delighted with a total of over £4,100 towards their building project.
The second Garden Opening took place also in July when the NSPCC, Bungay Branch, raised £1,500.
In addition, the local churches of St Mary’s, Ditchingham, & St Peter’s, Hedenham were grateful to be the beneficiaries of smaller events and generous donations while the Game Conservancy £2,300 cannot go without mention.
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2016 calendar.
