Dear Members and Friends.
Hi everyone. Sorry It's been a while since I did the blog. Matt is putting this on for me as my settings are out of action at present.
Hopefully I will be able to gain access soon.

Fundraising. Awards for All Lottery funding

Great News!

We have just got news that we have been awarded the funding from The Awards For All Lottery Fund.
This means we can go ahead and get the large touch screen we were asking for.
It will mean we can show DVDs, Play the Wii game and lots of other games on the big touch screen.
It will take a few weeks yet but we will have a big presentation when it is delivered.

Other good News:

You may have seen and chatted to a volunteer called Sarah at club: (She does the Bingo, crafts and coffee bar)
He partner Phil is going to swim for 2 miles in Lake Winderemer (In the Lake District) to raise money for PHAB.
Phil is a fireman and works at Wisbech Fire Station. He does outdoor lake swimming as a hobby and to keep fit. The lakes are very cold and it's a lot harder than swimming in a pool! I have put this event on BTmydonate website where people can donate. Please tell everyone about this event. I also have sponsor forms.

Members trips out


21st June 2014. Trip to Hunstanton with June. Limited spaces.

Wroxham Boat trip 13th June

Wixsteed Park trip still being planned. Date to follow.

We do have to rely on our volunteer drivers giving their time to organise days out, so please bear with us on this.

We are going to start recycling cans at PHAB Club. I am getting a can crusher to fix to the side of the shed out the back of the hall. We thought it would be good if some of you volunteered to crush all those cans you use on club nights.
Once we get a bag full it can be weighed in and we can get cash for them to add to the club funds.
Talk to Carol or Tony if you fancy having a go at can crushing!!!

We also need raffle prizes for club nights, Darren Busby night and fundraising stalls. If you have anything you think would be suitable that you don?t need any more we would really appreciate your support.


Junior Club News

As you may know the Junior Club has now started. It is going very well and numbers are building up.
I have just had news that they have been rewarded a grant for £ 500.00 from Wisbech Town Council. This will help them with running costs such as paying for the hall and buying a laptop.
If you know any children aged 9 yrs or more who you think would like to come and see what this club has to offer please tell them about it.

See you at PHAB

Carol
