In addition to running our LIFESAVERS lottery tote, and our various football activities, we occasionally hold fundraising events such as barn dances, supermarket bag packing, golf tournaments, charity football matches, coffee mornings and more. We also enjoy doing sponsored walks, runs, climbs and events.
We have enjoyed helping Macmillan Cancer Relief with their supermarket collections and we also do lots to support the Dementia Gateways and the Alzheimer's Society through Rise & Shine and our Walking Football.
If you would like to help with any of the above events, or if you would like to support us or get involved in any way, please contact Dave on 01384 341673. Thank you.
We are continually searching for collectors and volunteers to help us with our lottery and charity events. If you can spare a few hours each week please contact us for more details.
Our Dementia Memory Walk around Mary Stevens Park in October was a lot of fun and a big success. Thank you to everyone who got involved. We raised £590 on the day for the Alzheimer's Society. Thank you.
Our charity football match verses Birmingham City All Stars was a huge success raising £1,700 for Macmillan Cancer Relief.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored him.
So a big thanks to everyone involved.
Our Charity Barn Dance for Barnardo's "Stop It Now Campaign" raised £739.

Our Golf Day at Great Barr Golf Club and raised £2,200 for Cancer Research. A record year. Thank you to everyone who played (even the hackers) and a big thanks to Great Barr Golf Club for their hospitality.
You may know that our walking football Chairman and lottery Promoter, Dave Thomas, has been in involved in some very energetic fundraising events in his time. He climbed up Ben Nevis for The British Heart Foundation. It took him nearly 7 hours and he says "never again", he ran the New York Marathon in for St John Ambulance (he nearly came last) and he also took part in the annual Tough Guy event and nearly died. He's a sucker for punishment.
