A very special welcome to our new committee member Fitzroy Dawson elected at our AGM 2022!  

CHRISTMAS CHARITY LUNCH - 11th December 2022

Kingswood Golf Country Club. Kingswood KT20 6NE
Total raised £6,200 for this charity!

RREC Surrey Section at our 2021 Christmas Charity lunch raised £15,000 to purchase three Bugzi mobility chairs for disabled toddlers. Two of our Bugzi's have been allocated to Surrey families. In this video, with permission from his parents, we feature one year old Finn that was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and up until this video was very lethargic and sleepy little boy. Watch the transformation when he realises, he can now independently move around the room by pushing the buttons on his Bugzi. Finn now has greater independence to move independently; greater choice to be able to choose where he wants to be; greater opportunities for social participation with other children as currently has no way of mobilising independently.  It is wonderful to see charity money raised by our members making a vital difference to children and their families in Surrey!  

 

RREC National Headquarters are conducting an audit of all national club members and their section affiliates.   Unfortunately, 11 Surrey members have allowed their National membership lapse and as a result are no longer registered with RREC National Headquarters.  Anyone can attend any of our events as a guest so long as you fill in a booking form for that event.  If you wish to continue to receive our Seasonal Newsletters by post you must register with Surrey Section and pay a fee to cover postage, paper and production expenses.

Congratulations to Trevor Longley and Denise Earwicker for organising another very successful charity classic car event at Woldingham School in memory of our dear friend and club member David Heater.  Christine Heater, David's wife, presented a cheque for £3,400.00 raised prior to the event to Bloomin' Arts.  There was an additional £2,175.00 raised on the day with an auction and donations for our Newsletter Editor Matthew Stone sponsored post-covid haircut that raised £700.00! Making a total of £5,575.00 raised for the charity. This is second year that Woldingham School have offered their beautiful grounds for this event.  The catering was delicious and plentiful.  We also had our resident singer Sarah and magician, Martin providing entertainment throughout the afternoon.  We also had an amazing hawk display by Wayne Davies from Avian Environmental Consultants that was enjoyed by many of the youngsters that afternoon. We were very privileged to see a dance performance by Bloomin' Arts as well. 
Photos of this special event will be in our 2022 Events gallery.
