FACE Events 2023

Thursday 9th November: Wine Tasting event

We are supporting The Furzedown Project's Wine Tasting event with Urban Wine UK on Thursday 9th November 7pm to 9pm

This great fundraising event is with Urban Wine Co - which produces 'Chateau' Tooting, wonderful wines from grapes grown in gardens, allotments and smallholdings  across London.

The founder Richard, will talk about when the idea first formed in his local back garden in 2009, insights about the process, the people involved, what happened with the name ‘Chateau’ and this year’s fantastic harvest of 2 metric tonnes of fruit which will make approximately 1,600 bottles of wine.

Tickets are £10 for Project members and £15 for non-members, which includes a glass of wine with a selection of cheeses – raising money for the Project's activities and outreach services. Enjoy this fascinating talk with a Q&A session, plus the chance to taste the blush and white sparkling wines and the new red wine, there will also be the opportunity to buy bottles – perfect Christmas gifts, and a prize raffle!

Spaces are limited, book and pay in advance at The Project, 91/93 Moyser Rd, London SW16 6SJ (open Mon-Fri 10am to 4:30pm), or call them on 0208 677 4283 or email services@furzedownproject.org

Our Garden Gig in June and Quiz Night in February raises 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

For our Quiz Night in February Graveney hall was packed, people brought their own food and drinks and enjoyed the fun 8-round quiz, with lots of quirky questions (including a live music round) there was something for everyone, whether good at Quizzes or not! There were 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 2023 -  we are helping plan a special street party on Chillerton Road as part of the Mayor's Community Weekend in June and also planning another FACE Garden Gig at the end of June, and may to do a new event in the autumn

The Big Day Out run by Furzedown Community Network (FCN) would need a lot of new help to run (Please contact them if you would like to help organise one in 2024) but there are lots of other activities planned including a Furzedown War Walk; RunWalk Scoot Furzedown; a Coronation Family Fun Day from Enable Services on Furzedown Rec and street parties in May; an LGBT celebratory street party  in June; 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 on 18th 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; including Graveney School and FCN. This successful outcome 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.
