The community in Faringdon has sadly been touched by Cancer a number of times over the last few years. In memory of those we have lost and a show of support to those that are still fighting their fight, we decided to organise a charity weekend to show support to the family and friends that make up our community.
The event took place over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend at The Folly Inn, Faringdon. The aim of the weekend was to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Little Princess Trust. It was a fabulous fun weekend with loads of activities throughout.
It actually all started with Dan House growing his hair for 18 months, in order to have enough to donate 7″ to Little Princess Trust. It just expanded from there!
It’s not too late to donate – just visit our JustGiving page!
Pub Quiz – hosted by Dave Hatton……..man it was tough! £400 was raised for the British Heart Foundation too!
