Help for disadvantaged children

At last night’s meeting Vice President Keith Rolfe had the pleasure of presenting a cheque for £100 to Di and Duncan McIver of Paddington Childrens Holidays.

Through their holiday scheme ten socially disadvantaged children, selected by Westminster Youth Services, in conjunction with St Stephen’s Primary School, Paddington, will spend a week at The Warden’s Activity Centre. This centre, located close to the beach between Sizewell and Thorpeness, is a fully certified residential and day centre”.

Randolph Fun Day August 2013

The people of Reydon and further afield came out to enjoy the sun and jazz music at the annual Randolph Hotel fun day. The event took place, as usual, on August Bank Holiday Monday. Guests enjoyed the sounds of Rhythm ‘n’ Reeds Jazz, stationary engines, mini display from the Lowestoft Mini Club, Bouncy Castle, BBQ, lots of stalls and the GRAND RAFFLE, with almost £1,000 worth of prizes. Proceeds from the day will go to the East Coast Hospice

We supported the event with our soft toy stall and raised £175 in 4 hours. A big thank you to everyone who helped. To view photos from the day click here or to see a short video of the day click here.
