Cherry Lodge Cancer Care fundraisers continue to put on an interesting and succesful range of events, getting 2024 off to an excellent start with the Summer Soulstice/Cherry Lodge Heart & Soul Ball on 17th February. This was followed, on Friday 23rd February, by the first Arkley Club Cha Night of the year. Iris’s Easter Flower Arranging Workshop, held on Thursday 21st March 2024 at Barnet Grange Care Home, was very much enjoyed. Thankfully, the weather stayed dry for the Cherry Lodge Easter Sponsored Walk ‘n’ Talk event in Oakhill Park on Sunday 24th April 2024.

Next up for CL fundraisers is the 2024 tcs London Marathon on Sunday 21st April. We have seven runners taking part to raise money for Cherry Lodge – please sponsor them as generously as you can. Summer Soulstice is holding a festival Warm-Up event at the Black Horse pub, Barnet on Saturday 4th May 2024, with soulful beats from 4pm until midnight, wood-fired pizza and cocktails. Enjoy a fantastic comedy line-up at Laugh out Loud on Saturday 11th May 2024. Thinking further ahead, tickets are available via this link for Summer Soulstice 2024, to be held on Saturday 15th June.
