CONCERT DORSET MALE VOICE CHOIR – GREAT SUCCESS!


We are pleased to report that £900 was raised on Saturday 8th July when the DORSET POLICE MALE VOICE CHOIR AND LIZ FERRIE (well known singer – opera and musicals) gave us an evening of inspiring music and singing. The total amount raised was equally divided between CANCERactive and the World Healing Crusade. Barbara Robinson (event organiser) said “It was a very enjoyable evening for everyone and we were able to give out over 200 leaflets raising people’s awareness of the two charities. We are looking forward to the next time!”


SUMMER TEA PARTY


A big thank you goes out to Patricia Jones who held a Summer Tea Party on Wednesday 2nd August in Harpole, Northants. Over 100 people of all ages attended. An afternoon of fun activities was had by all, including a raffle, tombola, face painting and many others. Patricia had very personal reasons for holding the event – her son Ivor has recently recovered from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and attributed his recovery to the discovery of icon magazine during a hospital visit and subsequently changing his lifestyle and eating habits. In excess of £1000 was raised!!
