We recently joined forces with our Community Partners, the 4th Rochford Scout Group at their Hall in Church Walk, for this Charity Fundraising Event! Everyone took their own drink & nibbles and had great fun placing bets of just £1 up to max of £5 on the Tote, then cheering on their chosen horses to the finish line!!! Payouts were anything from about £2 up to the biggest payout of the evening which was a whopping £12 each to 2 punters!!! We had some great Raffle Prizes which were all donated. The whole evening raised a total of £280, which will be split between the 2 charities. Peaceful Place will use the money to pay for entertainment & activities for the Members at the Day Centre. The Scout Group will use the money to make a start on refurbishing their kitchen at the Hall.
Great noisy fun!!!
Peaceful Place Xmas Party!!! 20th December 2017
The Members & their families had a wonderful afternoon at the Day Centre, with the brilliant Julie Jive entertaining us with her fantastic songs from the 40s, 50s & 60s! There was a delicious Xmas buffet and soft drinks a plenty! The Members wore their favourite Xmas jumpers and the Staff all dressed up for the Yuletide Felicitations as Xmas Trees, a Snowman, a Xmas Cracker and a jolly fat Xmas Pudding!!! Father Xmas even found time to stop by to pick out the winning Raffle Tickets for everyone! Great fun!!!
