FACE - our 2022 vision!

 

We are planning to have a special Garden Gig in 2022, with a west-end star and delicious food to enjoy. Please follow us on social media so we can let you know when we have more news about dates and performers

Sadly Furzedown Community Network (FCN) Big Day Out 2022 is uncertain, even before the crisis they were struggling to find volunteers to help organise the much-loved event, but hopefully people will come forward to help and there are lots of local plans to celebrate the Queen's jubilee with street parties.

 

For more information on the FCN visit their website: http://furzedown.net Join the local chat group email: furzedown+subscribe@groups.io

Kid's Halloween Disco raises over £400!

The Rose & Crown's Halloween Kid's Disco on 28th October 2021 raised an amazing £413 from donations and games for FACE's local charities.

There were fancy dress competitions and the Amazing DJ Dan provided lots of great spooky dancing music and fun games and treats for all little terrors, plus some frighteningly delicious craft beers and gruesomely gorgeous gins for grown-up monsters!

Entrance was FREE (but with a suggested donation of £3 for FACE at the door). It was great to see all the mini witches, vampires, scary monsters and superheroes accompanied by their responsible adult creatures...

FACE Quiz Night 2019

Thanks to you we raised almost £2000 at 2019's Quirky Quiz Night

 

There was an excellent turn-out from Furzedown, with lots of chances to win, plus a delicious meal and some great rounds of questionable questions - identify the ketchup?! - Andrew Holdsworth on the piano for Name that tune... Team Biscuit were the winning team but everyone had fun.

It was wonderful to hear from Eveline, the chair of our local MNDA group, who helped explain how important our fundraising has been for them.

Chill-out room opens

IMG_0482.jpg

FACE has been supporting the development of a special unit in St Georges that will uplift the experiences of children and young adults while they are in hospital being treated for cancer, by creating a special zone for relaxation, communication, and enjoyment. A specialist nurse advocate (funded by MacMillan Nurses) will be based in the room to support young people.

The chill-out room was officially opened on 18th September 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.
