Fundraising will remain challenging for as long as the threat from the coronavirus virus persists. Following the cancellation of its entire Spring and Summer programme, the Cherry Lodge Cancer Care fundraising team drew up plans for the Autumn, only some of which could come to fruition. The team is, however, showing great resilience and creativity in adapting to the ongoing situation, raising funds while doing everything possible to keep people safe. Our first fundraising event in 2021 will be an online Quiz Evening on Sunday 7th February.
Cherry Lodge’s annual Pink Tombola, always a very popular event, was held very successfully (with anti-Covid precautions in place ) on Saturday 10th October 2020. This was followed, on Saturday 24th October, by a hugely enjoyable Zoom Comedy Night in collaboration with Collywobblers Comedy Club. Congratulations to the lucky winners of the Cherry Lodge Annual Grand Raffle, which was drawn on Tuesday 27th October. The planned Cherry Lodge Christmas Market sadly had to be cancelled but the venue has been reserved for us on 4th December 2021. Our Christmas Comedy Night held via Zoom on Saturday 12th December 2020 was very popular and a great success. Zoom also enabled people to attend our annual Lights of Love ceremony held at Howard House on 13th December.
