West Bridgford Conservative Club is holding its annual charity Autumn Fayre this Saturday, 11th November, from 1pm to 4pm at its clubhouse on Rectory Road.
All proceeds will be donated to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association which the club has supported throughout the whole of 2017. Over £2000 has already been raised from charity events held during the year.
Club Secretary, Peter Brunger, said “Each year the club supports a chosen charity and members work long and hard to raise money through a number of events. This year we are delighted to be supporting Guide Dogs for the Blind which does so much to help both blind and partially sighted people get their lives back. It costs around £55,000 to train each guide dog and provide support during its working life so contributions like these arevital to the continuing work of the charity. Our Autumn Fayre on Saturday is open to everybody, so please do come along to the club on Saturday afternoon, have some fun and help support this very worthwhile cause.”
Visitors can meet a guide dog and enjoy a choice of stalls including a tombola and a special children’s tombola, home made cakes, books, roll-a-coin, a children’s free Santa’s Sack and more . There will also be a grand raffle with a wide variety of great prizes. A licenced bar, coffee, afternoon teas and soft drinks will all be available.
