The Orwell Challenge- 23rd June 2019

Several of the Family First team completed The Orwell Challenge, walking a gruelling 14 miles in the June sunshine! We raised £416 to support the work of Family First. It was certainly character building!




Cookery Demonstration- 14th March 2019


We had an amazing evening at Gresham’s Sports and Social Club watching local chef Emma Crowhurst demonstrating some wonderful desserts. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we raised a fantastic £680!
