In no particular order, our
your village, your charity fun day
I’ve remained as optimistic as possible and hoped the restrictions would have been lifted by now but they haven’t due to many selfish numpties who wouldn’t adhere to the Governments simple guidelines. Therefore, I’m left with no choice but to cancel next months charity event 😔
I’m totally gutted as much work has gone into this project already. Not just by me but Paul Bolger, Andrew Savage and Nick Plews who organised a full days worth of live music in the beer garden by local musicians and Sam Green @ Sams GRAFIX who designed the posters and sponsor forms in readiness. Also Paula Louise Townsend, the landlady of the Old Crown, who was totally on board with this project and ready to support it fully. Not to mention the numerous individuals who offered their help and support on the day.
I promise that next year the two charities, who would’ve benefitted, Gems Charity Leicestershire and Debbie Dickman @ LOROS will again be my two named charities to benefit. Let’s hope we can make it bigger and better to make up for this year.
Take care all and continue to support our local pubs, shops and other businesses where possible whilst adhering to the obvious !

Craft stalls, cake stall, BBQ, bouncy castle and live music in the beer garden.
These are just some of the things happening on this Charity Fun Day.
Those of you who have supported my events before will know exactly what to expect…….it’s really a case of ‘watch this space’ for further details.
I can tell you that this year it’s being held at The Old Crown, Fleckney on Saturday 22nd August.
Also, as a side feature,
Jo Hardman and Jarron Perkins
will be having their heads shaved and their hair being donated to ‘Little Princess Trus’.
So that’s it for the moment. Please stick the date in your diaries and let’s make it a successful day for the two chosen charities.
GEMS Charity was founded in June 2012 by Andy and Sally Anderson of Kibworth after accompanying four close friends on weekly visits to the Osborne Chemotherapy Suite at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Inspired by the hard work and dedication of the nurses and the potential life-saving procedures that happen in the Suite it soon became apparent that they needed as much help as possible to make the surroundings comfortable and homely.
The Oncology Unit treats hundreds of people with all types of cancer every day, and it relies heavily on the generous donations and help from the public.
GEMS Charity is run solely by volunteers and all funds raised go directly to the suite.
The name of our charity is made up from the initials of those four close friends:
Gill, Elizabeth, Meg, and Sarah
