2017 Christmas Charity Bingo
In December 2017, as part of 12 charities/local organisations that attend a monthly bingo evening the Tennis Club took their turn to organise the raffle to raise funds for a new defibrillator. The event, held at the Langstone Cliff Hotel, was attended by nearly 400 people. Our raffle raised £2,273 for the Club, which more than met our target to fund a defibrillator.
A team of 21 enthusiastic and energetic individuals did a fantastic job throughout the evening, coordinating the entry of guests, and selling the bingo books and raffle tickets. Stella Isaac, Alison Hatherley, Jo Hussain, Natasha Cleave, Sam Blick, Robert Elver, Peter Elver, Paul Halfyard, Kerry Elver, Jake Broom, Matt West, Kari Dixon, Andrew Bailey, Liz Stoneman, Anthony Russell, Jason Hatherley, Tom Hatherley, Adam Halfyard, Charlotte Acheson, Lucy Acheson, Molly Acheson, Helen Acheson. Many members and their families supported the fund raising effort with donations of raffle prizes, hamper donations, and separate money donations (totalling £250). It really was a great Team effort!
