A Constructive Way To Have Some Fun!

by otmg on Thursday 13th April

We all need a good laugh now and again and that is frequently what we do when we are organising and participating in events. We are a lovely varied bunch with all sorts of different skills and we are now looking for new members for the team. No experience is necessary but if you have it we will love it! There are so many ways that you can help - for example - from putting up posters, making/buying a pud, selling raffles tickets to sourcing/booking halls, caterers or musicians and book-keeping or writing press releases. We have so much fun with our events and everyone can do as much or as little as they like - and our committees have socials to celebrate what ever they have achieved!

So...Who Are We?

We are the local Neurofibromatosis Association (NFA) fundraising team and we are expanding the events list with functions in the larger area covered by the NFA Specialist Advisor based in Southampton. This is all of Hampshire and the Isle Of Wight, Dorset, and part of Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex. The NFA has to find 75% of the cost of providing this specialist support in our area and we try to raise funds at a local level.

Here are a few of the events nearby where we will need extra help:

01/06/06 Basingstoke Charity Fair
11/06/06 NE Hants Conservative Association Event, Winchfield.
01/07/06 Laverstoke Park Open day, nr Overton
26/27/08/06 Odiham Jazz Weekend.
