FACE Events 2021

FACE - our 2021 vision!

 

GARDEN GOODIES

FACE will be having a plant sale outside 6 Chillerton Road at the end of May with their green-fingered garden guru Stuart, who has been busy growing lots of lovely things to brighten our gardens.

Please come along and support us, we will have a contactless card reader.

GARDEN GIG

We are planning to have a special Garden Gig this summer, hopefully 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) will not be having a Big Day Out in 2021. Even before the crisis they were struggling to find volunteers to help organise the much-loved event, but hopefully the event may return in future years.

 

For more information on the FCN please visit their website here: http://furzedown.net

COVID-19 EMERGENCY

Our community is under huge pressure  under the current health crisis, but there are so many heart-warming examples of people helping each other and supporting those under self-isolation, cheering on our health-care workers and everyone who is still working to ensure we manage as best as possible - including shop keepers, bin men, police,  and all carers

Kid's Halloween Party
We are delighted  that we raised £379 at the Rose & Crown's fantastic Kid's Halloween Party in 2019...

 

It was a scream! Thanks to all the mini monsters and their human minders who came and enjoyed DJ Dan's spookstasic disco, with all the games and prizes !

FACE Quiz Night
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

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. Please read more in the official press release HERE

We are looking for new blood to join the FACE gang - There are also many other ways you can help in the future, including providing prizes, visiting out stall and buying or selling raffle tickets. You can also make a donation and we welcome any other ideas or support you can offer. 

Please help publicise our events and print out these PDFs and display our posters and leaflets where ever you can.

Please email us here or contact Alan Feast on 07973 216260 and we will keep you up to date with our news
