Buxted Inn dinner - 12th March

We are so grateful for all the support for the Party with a Purpose and the Autumn Dinner last year as it has helped us to maintain our good works with the outreach clinics and the children in the Likii slum, Kenya.


Our next fund raiser will be at the Buxted Inn on Thursday March 12th 2015 where we are being hosted by Jason again. A welcome drink and three course dinner will cost £17 plus a voluntary donation of £10 making a cost of £27.00 per person (you can come to the dinner alone but we need the extra!!). There will also be a raffle and a pay bar. Time 7.15 -8 pm arrival. Those who came last year know that the atmosphere will be great and the cause a really worthy one. We know where every penny we raise finishes up.


Tickets from Dr Gillian Bullock at East Holme Farm, Underhill, Maresfield, TN22 3AY, order by e-mail at or or by phone 01825 762928.

On Sunday October 5th, we will be having our annual lunch at Hendall Manor again.


Another successful dinner!

We had over 70 guests at Hendall Manor Barns on Friday 4th October for dinner and a good time was had by all. The surroundings, the food and the service were as good as the previous year. Between the donations included in the ticket price, the auction and the raffle, we made over £5000. Thank you to all our supporters.

Over £3000 raised from Sunday lunch

I am delighted to report that at our fund raising lunch on the 5th October, we raised £3100 and are still counting. The setting at Hendall Manor Barns was perfect, the sun shone and the food was delicious. In order to keep our supporters fully informed about our activities, instead of the Chairman giving the updating, it was given by four members of the management. The audience heard that our finances are sound and transparent, the outreach clinics going well and the IT/library centre developing steadily. The new Ag/tech project is now out to potential donors for support.


Our thanks to all those who made the day go so well and we would like to invite as many people as possible to come to our next event. This will be held at the Buxted Inn on Thursday March 12th thanks to the generosity of landlord Jason. More details soon but in the meantime visit our website
