The Charities We Support & Why

How Your Support Helps


Our 72nd Snowball in December 2019 was a resounding success, but unfortunately the event in 2020 had to be cancelled due to the covid pandemic . Since the opportunity to collect toys donated by guests at the function was not possible, a GoFundMe toy appeal was set up instead and the amazing sum of £2020 was raised by the generosity of our guests which was well beyond our dreams and expectations. This fund was used to purchase toys from local businesses which were subsequently delivered by the NSPCC on our behalf to families they help across their various projects within our region during the Christmas period. Here is a link to the subsequent press release from the NSPCC.
