Just a short newsletter this month, we are all very busy in HALDS at the moment, with holidays to Eurodisney & Marlborough Hotel, plus Christmas parties etc. Once Christmas is over, I will send out an end of year newsletter, with a host of new social events for 2019.
By the time we reach 2019 HALDS funds will be low, I have put in for funding from Awards for All, but this takes a few months before we hear whether we have been successful or not. In place of a meeting in November, we held our Christmas fair which raised £428.05 towards our funds and Sharon & Andrew will be completing their sponsored swim in February, date to be confirmed. I have also heard that pending meeting their criteria we have been awarded funding from Cheshire Community foundation of £350.
Just a few reminders of events for December:
