Putting on an Event for Cherry Lodge
If you would like to put on an event to raise money on our behalf, either as an individual or through your workplace or another organisation, we would be delighted to hear from you.
We believe that raising money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care should be a joint venture and we will be happy to support you in any way we can. For example, our Fundraising team can give you advice, help you plan and perhaps run your event, help you with publicity, lend you promotional material, and, as appropriate, provide Cherry Lodge signs, T-shirts and certificates.
Whether your plans are big or small we would be delighted to hear from you. We can help you over the phone, in person at our Centre, or by coming to talk to your group. For more information please contact our Charity Administrator and Fundraising Events Coordinator, Tina Papasavva, on 020 8441 7000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Spring to Summer 2020, the ongoing coronavirus epidemic has caused the cancellation of a range of fundraising events planned by third party supporters. These included Dawn Ledgard’s Spring 2020 Clothes Sale (planned for 6th April), the Mayor of Barnet’s 1920s Gala Dinner and also Summer Soulstice’s Springy Brews & Soul (both due to have taken place on 25th April), followed by cancellation of Summer Soulstice 2020 (scheduled for 27th June), which, as usual, would have been Cherry Lodge’s biggest annual third party fundraising event of the year. We are sorry for the disappointment that these necessary cancellations have caused to event organisers and also to everyone who had purchased tickets.
Our first gallery below opens with a notice for Summer Soulstice Virtual 2020, which will be held on Saturday 27th June to replace the cancelled Soulstice live festival event. This is followed by publicity for five past events from third-party supporters, in reverse order: January Brews & Soul from Summer Soulstice held on Saturday 25th January 2020; The Coffee Bean Hamper Raffle Draw on 21st December 2019; Dawn Ledgard’s Autumn 2019 Clothes Sale on 23rd October; the second annual Soulstice Golf Day on 27th September 2019; and The Timber Group’s novel charity cycle race – to ‘Paris’ on an exercise bike – held during the week starting 16th September 2019.
The second gallery features publicity for events organised by the 2019-20 Barnet Mayor’s Appeal in support of Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and Home-Start Barnet. Faced with the disappointment of having to cancel their planned Gala Dinner, Mayor Caroline Stock and her Appeal Committee were characteristically energetic and resourceful and went online on Saturday 25th April 2020 to put on two very successful fundraising draws – the Mayor’s ‘Money Can’t Buy’ Virtual Auction and the Mayor’s Virtual Raffle – both held on Saturday 25th April 2020 when the dinner was to have taken place. Other 2019-20 Mayor’s Appeal events included the Valentine Jazz Soiree on 6th February 2020, the Mayor of Barnet’s Bridge Evening on 13th February 2020, the Tea, Gift Wrapping and Flower Arranging event on 25th November 2019 and The Big Barnet Quiz on 16th November 2019.
