Dear Members

We hope this letter finds you well and you are enjoying getting out and about again albeit recently sometimes in the rain.

Lunchtime meetings

We are enjoying the food at the monthly lunch meetings at the Canterbury Rugby Club, so this will be ongoing.

Lunch meetings will continue on the 3rd Thursday every month as before between 12.30 and 2.30pm, unfortunately due to the rising costs of everything we have increased the cost to £6 per person for food with tea/coffee which we feel is excellent value and is subsidised by the club.

The next meetings will be on Thursday 20th October, 17th November and 19th January, we will NOT however be holding one in December as we have organised a Christmas Lunch on 15th December (see below).

PLEASE could inform one of the committee members if you are planning to attend (at least the week beforehand), we can then ensure we have sufficient refreshments, we do not want to over cater and waste food. Thank you.

Cream Tea

Richard one of our members kindly held a cream tea in July which raised an amazing £700.  The event was enjoyed by all, thank you Richard and team.

       

Summer BBQ

The BBQ on Saturday 16th July 2022, at the Canterbury Rugby Club was well attend and was enjoyed by all, the food and music went down well. The weather was in our favour which always helps.  Thank you to all those that provided raffle prizes.

 

Christmas Lunch

The Christmas Lunch will be held at the Canterbury Rugby Club on Thursday 15th December 2022, 1.30 for 2pm.  The cost will be £25.00 for three courses.  If you are interested, please contact Roz Bradley (details below).  We can only cater for 48 so please ensure you book early, payment with booking please.

Christmas Cards

We will be selling Christmas cards again this year, these will be available at the lunchtime meetings and from the Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy Depar5tments at the Kent & Canterbury.  We will not be increasing the cost of the cards, they will be £3 per pack of 10 or two packs for £5.
