Help us support village halls

A message from Community Action Northumberland

Dear friend,

As you know, village halls are at the heart of our communities in Northumberland. They offer a place for groups to get together, children to play, people to learn new skills, and family and friends to celebrate. Village halls are a focal point for the local community.

But we know they need support to survive. Behind the scenes, it is you as trustees and management committees that keep village halls going – and you need support and training to fulfil your roles.

Anonymous donation to Fistula Hospital

Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa

Regular readers of Cheviot Views newsletter will likely know of the work of Beryl and John Parr who regularly raise funds for the Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

They frequently do this by running a charity shop in Wooler, selling almost anything if it is in a good, saleable condition and, where applicable (e.g. electrics), in working condition. Items such as clothes, household goods, bric-a-brac, toys, tools, sports equipment, children’s things and books are always welcome. Small items of furniture can often also be accommodated and sold. Videos can’t be sold but old vinyl records do sell quite well.

This is an annual event in Powburn and more people than ever attended this year. In fact, it was so successful that £490.00 was raised for good causes.

As usual, there were a number of Christmas crafts stalls and the light lunch of soup and bread roll, with a lovely cup of tea or coffee went down very well.
