Thursday 24th September is the day when a cheque will be handed over to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

This money will be from the proceeds of our Picnic to Music in The Park two day event held in July.

Two years ago, our club handed over a cheque for £77, 000. This year it will be significantly less.

Not that the event was not successful, it was as many turned out to see the tribute bands on the Saturday and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra on the Sunday.

But with the economic downturn and of course the terrible weather in July (well throughout the summer really), sales have been affected.

So we will not be handing over such a large cheque this year, but there will be announcement mentioning the amount after the handing over of the cheque next Thursday.
