Hello from the Trustees,
Finally getting around to posting some images from our Annual Wine Tasting Event hosted by SJ Wines of Newbury http://www.sjwines.co.uk/ and Friends of Young Carers (West Berkshire).
Our thanks go to St. Gabriels Junior School for once again allowing us to host our event here. Lots of parking, a lovely spacious hall and friendly and helpful staff makes it easy for us.
Our guests were treated to a lovely cheese and pate ploughmans supper, some tasty treats to accompany the red wines, a raffle and the chance to wine a case of delicious sparkling and red and white wines. We are also thrilled that Stephen and his team have donated half of their costs for the event back to Friends of Young Carers.
Our winning team were Pauline’s Last Chancers, closely contested by the ladies from Barclays Bank, Newbury and The Afterthoughts!
We love to see familiar faces and also welcome lots of new friends. A special mention must go to our Barclays Ladies who have supported us from the start, run our raffles and match fund on our Quiz nights.
The total raised was £1,200 all of which will go towards a rolling activity plan for 2017. Learning opportunities, fun, courses, individual need and transport costs. We are very excited about the year ahead for our Young Carers in West Berkshire.
