MESSAGE FROM MAUREEN: Thought you may want to know what happened to the £1001 that the SVP received from the 2018 Christmas concert……it went to fund days out to a Friends of the Family toddler group to Finkley Farm, an older children’s trip to Calshott, a single dad’s group visit to Marwell Zoo, donated towards a summer camp for 2 children and this week we are taking 8 Home Start families to the sea-side! So that money has brought joy to so many families. Thank you choir!!
