FACE Events 2019
FACE gets festive!
We will be at the Furzedown Christmas market on Saturday 14th December from 4 to 7pm - which moves from Moyser Road to the grounds of Graveney School
Under the trees in a twinkly twilight setting, this year the ‘Enchanted’ Christmas Market will feature over 40 stalls selling wonderment and dreams, Santa Claus and fantastic local choirs and bands for your delectation!
FACE will be selling a fantastic selection of luxury soaps, candles, and treats from Heyland & Whittle, which make wonderful Christmas presents, all at half the price you'd pay in shops - and 100% of what you spend will go to local causes - we will also have a raffle to win a hamper of goodies, so please come by and support our stall.
Entry is via Welham Road - just follow the lights... Refreshments befitting the season will be available from the FCN stall. There will also be children’s craft workshops and the chance to make festive loveliness for your homes - with green theme - along with face painting, popcorn, cakes and treats for all!
Kid's Halloween Party
We are delighted that we raised £379 at the Rose & Crown's fantastic Kid's Halloween Party this year...
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 this year'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.
