Fund Raising in the Town Hall at the Chistmas Makers Market.
Thank you to every body who came and supported us in the Town Hall yesterday at the Uttoxeter Christmas Makers Market.
This was the final fund raising activity of the year as part of our efforts to raise £1000 for the Uttoxeter Gateway Club. We made £448 on the day, bringing our total fund raising to £1,133, so we did it!
The Gateway Club had a stall inside the Town Hall at the Makers Xmas Market on Saturday 26th November 2016.
The Club sold Crafts, Cakes and an assortment of Gifts for Christmas. We also sold cakes for our Xmas Raffle.
We were on the stall all day from 9.00am to 4pm – it was great to see so many people who came along and made this a fabulous day.
We were able to raise £267 towards our Fund Raising target of £1000.
AGM 4th October 2016
Our AGM was held on Tuesday 4th October and was again supported by both parents and club members. After the reports from Pauline, the Club Organiser, she then outlined our activities and events over the last 12 months. She also listed a few of the activities planned for the coming twelve months, a list of which will be posted on the new website.
Teresa, the Club Treasurer, gave details outlining the state of our finances saying that we have enough funds for a further 12 months of operation. However, we need some long term solution to fund raising to enable us to plan into the future. Projects, such as the holiday which we have been able to undertake for so many previous years, may have to be put on hold unless we can secure a benefactor soon.
Paul, Trustees Chairman, thanked all the helpers and volunteers who had assisted over the last 12 months, especially Pauline who has worked tirelessly to see that the club members had some fantastic events. Concern was raised over the state of the finances and it was agreed that a Trustees meeting would be held after the half term break to discuss an action plan.
After the reports were read, the audience were asked if anyone present would like to become a trustee. No written requests had been received from anyone who would like to become a trustee. In both cases, no new requests where received. The existing trustees expressed their wish to remain in their current posts and so a vote was then taken to have all the existing trustees remain. This was past unanimously.
After a discussion about our new website the formal part of the meeting was officially closed and we all retired for our tea and cake!
Once again the Uttoxeter Gateway Club had a stand at the Uttoxeter Lark in the Park.
With the assistance of Barclays Bank, this year we managed to raise more than £1000, a fantastic result.
We’d like to thank all the people who stopped by the stand and helped us raise this amount which goes towards helping us continue to provide this much needed service.
Well done everybody!
