If you are shopping at Waitrose in Egham this Christmas, you will see that The Penrose Club is one of the nominated charities for the Waitrose Community Matters donations. Please make sure you drop your green token into this box!
On Friday 1st December a Christmas concert by the New Egham Singers was held at St John’s Church, Egham in aid of The Penrose Club. The New Egham Singers is a 100 strong choir and features our very own Penrose helper Sharon Thapper (soprano). The evening was a sell-out and hugely enjoyed by all who attended. We are still totting up the generous donations and the proceeds from the raffle and refreshments stalls, but believe the evening will raise in excess of £1,000 for the club.
A massive thanks to our members who raised £350 for Children in Need at the fundraising disco in November at Staines Community Centre. Pictures of the event can be found here.
We have been notified that The Penrose Club will receive a donation of around £1,400 as a result of the Co-op “Local Community Fund”, whereby the Co-op donate 1% of everything their members spend on own branded products and services to local causes. The cheque will be presented later in December.
Our friend and former helper, Peter Marchant completed his 17 day sponsored hike through the mountains of the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp back in April, in aid of the Penrose Club. We congratulate him on his amazing achievement and thank him for his generous donation.
