Our events in 2023 raised over £5000!

 

Everything in the garden was lovely and the rain held off for our Garden Gig in June. We enjoyed amazing performances from Damian Wilson and talented local performers, as well as a delicious meal and prize raffle which all helped us raise over £2,000

Our Quiz Night in February Graveney hall was packed, There were lots of quirky questions (including a live music round). Also prize-winning games and a special raffle… which will helped us raise an amazing £3,199 for local causes

Furzedown Aspire sponsored both events - thank you!

FACE - our future vision!

 

There are lots of activities to look forward to in 2024 - we are planning another FACE Garden Gig at the end of June, and may to do a new event in the autumn, as well as supporting over events in the area. We'd love new members too!

Last year there was a Fun Day on the Rec  (instead of The Big Day Out) run by Furzedown Community Network (FCN) Please contact them if you would like to help them. And lots of other activities including a Furzedown War Walk; RunWalk Scoot Furzedown; a Family Fun Day from Enable Services; street parties; Jazz on the Lawn and Christmas events.

Chill-out room opens

FACE helped develop a special unit in St George's Hospital that will uplift the experiences of children and young adults while they are in hospital being treated for cancer,. This special room is for relaxation and socialising. A specialist nurse advocate (funded by MacMillan Nurses) is based in the room to support young people.

The chill-out room was officially opened in September 2017 by our local MP Dr Rosena Allin-Khan with St George's staff, governers and patients and members of FACE - This was only possible thanks to all the fundraising efforts locally. This demonstrates what a caring and brilliant community we live in. By uniting efforts from individuals, families, schools, organisations, and enterprises in and around Furzedown we can make such a difference and have helped make this dream become a reality.
