Our 2019 Charity Showcase was a huge success, raising £866 for Village Friends in Bognor. We had some amazing support from students, instructors, friends, family and the public.
Village Friends is a good neighbour scheme that was started more than 20 years ago to try and meet some of the needs of lonely, mainly elderly, often bereaved, and sometimes housebound people in the Six Villages area.
A small team of volunteers visit people in their homes weekly for a chat and maybe a cup of tea, on the basis of good neighbourliness. Over time true friendships have developed and the recent practice of holding social events has proved immensely successful.
Village Friends is a small charity entirely dependent on the generosity of the local communities for its funding and for its volunteers, without which so many people would be left without any form of social contact in their later years.
Thank you to our stallholders! Here is a bit more information about them!
