CLARITY ON CHARITY - We are very proud to have supported (and will continue to support ) charities and charitable events. A huge thanks to all who supported our last 4 annual festivals and numerous other events which has enabled us in turn to support worthy causes. We recently donated £500 from our funds to Air Ambulance from our July 2016 festival, plus £121 taken on the day at their stall. We also donated to Christian Aid, Prostaid and Macmillan Cancer Support from our funds and fund raising night. The previous 3 festivals enabled us to contribute over £1550 to Zoe's Place Baby Hospice. We are also proud to have supported and performed at numerous diverse charity events from the outset, including local fund raising events for individuals. A huge thanks to all Strummers and public, whose wonderful positive participation make it all possible. - David Jenkins

Thank you so much for all your efforts on Saturday night & entertaining us so well. It was a brilliant evening & I'm very grateful for the strummers donation. Please pass on my thanks to everyone. I'm pleased to say we managed to raise £568.71, most of which was gift aided, so we did very well & our kitchen should be totally finished by this Friday.
Certainly hope you can revisit next year & play for us in the hall, so we can 'bop' around a bit better. Maybe a summer event with drinks & cake.
