Many thanks to Paul Wheeler who joined Ken, Mo and Vanessa at the Pembroke Show in Lamphey last week. We had a lot of interest in the HOPE Centre, gave our new exhibition its first outing and sold hundreds of Community Raffle tickets – all of which income comes back to HOPE. Doing the same again in a couple of weeks time at the Martletwy Show.
Emily, one of our oxygen tank volunteer operators, is doing her first Skydive on the 17th August and raising money for HOPE at the same time. We hope it is a fantastic experience for her – something she has always wanted to do – and look forward to hearing all about it. Have a good one Emily.
We are postponing the show with Karen Wilson, renowned medium, which was to be at the end of August. It’s a shame but we hope to invite Karen back to Pembrokeshire later in the year.
We are so pleased to be able to confirm that our recent Midsummer Concert raised just over £3000 for the HOPE Centre a couple of weeks ago. A fantastic effort and thank you once again to our sponsors and volunteers and all who came on the night.
Friday 31st August at 7.00pm. Come and join us. Tickets are £10 and available from the HOPE Centre.
We had an amazing concert at St. Davids Cathedral last Friday – Midsummer’s Day. Theweather that evening was perfect, the venue was stunning and everyone enjoyed our concert which featured the Haverfordwest Male Voice Choir, Neyland Ladies Choir (Musical Director Lynne Kelleher), Philip Howells (fantastic performance on the Marimba) and Sarah Sharp (a very accomplished clarinettist) who was also the Musical Director for the HMVC. Peter Griffiths accompanied both choirs and our excellent compere was Huw George. More details of how much we raised for the HOPE Centre soon.
We had such a good day last Friday learning some new crafts with our friends from the Pembs MS Group. Taster sessions on rag rugging, glasswork, free stitching, painting and printing were much appreciated as was the shared lunch provided by Nanette. Thank you to Janet and Linda our tutors for their patience and we look forward to doing it all again sometime very soon.
