We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our Christmas Collection. The total raised was £3,865.78. This will be used to support many individuals and families in the area during 2019.
In addition, we would like to convey our thanks to Emsworth Concert Band. They kindly invited us to hold a collection at the end of their Christmas Concert in December when £271.88 was raised.
Finally, we would like to apologise to those living in parts of Southbourne that we never reached one evening. The weather was atrocious and it was decided it was too unpleasant and dangerous to go out. We realise many children do look forward to Santa’s visits and were disappointed.
