Friends of Legge House, August 2017 Newsletter

Posted on Posted in Newsletter

Hello everyone and welcome to our August 2017 newsletter.

Recent Events

Sunday 25th June saw the memorable celebration of 50 years of the Wroughton Youth Adventure Charity, based at Legge House. The event paid for itself and there was even some money left over to go towards the refurbishment of our premises, which was fantastic.

Despite the variable weather many people were in attendance in order to help the Trustees and Managers with the celebrations, creating a wonderful atmosphere of love, success, and joy. A huge ‘Thank you’ to all who came.

All of your gifts and donations have gone towards replacing and refurbishing the games we use.

Thank you also to all our lovely volunteers who work so hard for us – your time and efforts are very much appreciated and, without you, Legge House would not be the success it is.

We are aso delighted to advise that The Spring Fair in May 2017 raised over £400; a marvellous achievement.

Friends of Legge House Barbeque

Our next Friends of Legge House event is the barbeque on Sunday 13th August 2017; cooking starts at 4.30pm. Please remember to bring your own food to be cooked by our resident chef; rolls and salad will be provided. Please also note that there is no official alcohol bar but cold drinks will be provided. The cost to attend is £5 per party/person.

Christmas Dinner

The Legge House Christmas Dinner will be held in January 2018 – this is due to too many events (Christmas dinners very often) in the previous December! Please contact us for bookings and availability.

Annual Subscriptions

Yes, I’m after more money for the charity, how did you guess? 🙂

The Friends of Legge House year starts on the 1st August, with an annual subscription starting at just £10 (more if you are so inclined). So, now is the time to start thinking about renewing your membership or, indeed, becoming a very welcome member. If you wish to do so, please get in touch with myself, Mark or Sheila.

Prayer Network

We also have a Prayer Network for Friends who wish to support us by prayer. Again, for more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All of us at Legge House hope to see you at the barbeque and look forward to receiving your subscription for the year.

Until next time,

Gwen (Friends Volunteer Coordinator)
