Fundraising

We are constantly raising funds and receiving donations to support our activities and purchase equipment for the Tithe Barn.  In the past, we have purchased, staging, seating along with full professsional cinema projection and sound equipment for the barn.


Recent examples of fundraising include, in autumn 2016, our concert with the Harry Browns, which raised £650.00 for the new Memory Café, and we raised £1,300.00 at our 2016 New Years Eve Barn Dance to support our projects and general running costs.  In the same year, we received a donation of £200 from a local ballroom dance group for Music and Memories just after Christmas.  We are very grateful for all the help we receive.


Having supported the development of the Leg Club in the past, our main focus this year (2017) is the development of a range of projects to support local people with dementia and their carers and to support Nailsea Memory Café in becoming a sustainable project at the barn.  In addition to applying for grants, we will be holding a fund raising night in conjunction Nailsea Folk Club on St Patrick's Night - 17th March (£10 entry).

Sponsor a Chair

Thanks to our many sponsors we now have very comfortable chairs in place of the previous plastic school chairs, which served us well but could hardly be described as comfortable!  In addition we have been able to provide matching chairs but with arms for those with particular needs.  Thank you to all who sponsored a chair.  


A list of chair sponsors is displayed in the corridor.
