Charity Fair

A great opportunity for you to do some of your Christmas shopping, and have your lunch, in a relaxed atmosphere.
This year we have 15 different charities with a variety of different items, so there should be something for everyone. It’s also an opportunity to remember those who are struggling this year, by bringing along an item for the Cambridge Foodbank.
Lots of people have been crocheting and knitting poppies in remembrance of those who died in the Great War and there will be a quiet area where they will be displayed.
We hope to see you there.

Can you drive? Would you like to help local people?

Why not become a volunteer driver with the Haslingfield and Harlton Community Car Scheme.

The scheme helps people who don’t have access to a car to get to medical appointments and other essential visits. As a volunteer driver you are completely in control of how much – or how little – driving you do. You provide details of your general availability to the Scheme Coordinator (Lawrence Hopkins), and when the Coordinator contacts you by phone or e-mail to ask if you can do a particular drive, you can say Yes or No – no pressure is applied!
