SATURDAY 20th MAY COXCOMBE RECREATION FIELD CHIDDINGFOLD
The main purpose of this event was to celebrate our community and support the children and the activities
Thank you for all the support you gave to ensure the success of Chiddfest 2017, which raised a phenomenal £23,000! We wouldn’t have been able to put on this event without your help.
As well as raising a fantastic amount of money, Chiddfest brought the whole community together in a truly enjoyable way, which we hope will now be a firm bi-annual event in the Chiddingfold community calendar. Please do put Saturday 18th May 2019 in your diaries!
We have counted all the money and are in a position to distribute the money raised to the following organisations:
St Mary’s School was allocated £16,500. off which £6k of this donation have built a new KS1 playground. The other money will go towards electronic white boards, a new music sound system and a much needed storage shed for the school PTA.
The Music Works was given £2,000 in recognition of the important work it does with local children and the input it has in putting on such a successful event. They have donated this money to their own charitable activities The Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Centre in Guildford.
Other organisations have also benefited in the following way:
ALL the money raised will be going directly the Youth organisations in the village.
£750 Chiddingfold Village Nursery
£750 Chiddingfold Youth Club
£500 Chiddingfold Beavers, Cubs, Scouts
£500 Chiddingfold Brownies & Guides
£750 Chiddingfold Football Club
£750 Chiddingfold Cricket Club
£250 Messy Church - run by the Joint Churches
£250 Chiddingfold Mum & Toddler Group
These donations will have real impact on the organisations in the village, which rely so heavily on fundraising.
Thank you once again for supporting Chiddfest 2017 and helping to improve the experiences available to the children and young people in our community. We know that they will go on to be lovers of music and more invested in their own local community being brought together at such a great inclusive event!
It might seem a long way off but please do let us if you would be happy to support Chiddfest in 2019!
