There is a wishing well on the front garden that kids can throw change into, however we also have a collection pot inside (please ring) which we then donate in one go once we take it all down again

Want to help?

It takes a tremendous amount of time to build and sequence all of this. If there is anything you can donate, or would like to sponsor us, please contact us

Remembering Pam Augier

Mum was diagnosed with cancer of the bile duct in December 2014. Bile duct cancer or 'cholangiocarcinoma' has no obvious symptoms, and is often found when it is already at a very advanced stage. It is an aggressive, hard to treat cancer. The care and support from Phyllis Tuckwell is indescribable, they held our hands through every moment and we could not be more thankful.

Proudly supporting Phyllis Tuckwell

Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, living with cancer or another terminal illness (such as heart, lung or neurological disease) across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire. For over 35 years we have provided supportive and end of life care to local people, serving 550,000 residents. 2016 we took part in the Santa fun run in Aldershot :)

2016 - £320

Phyllis Tuckwell

2016 was the first year we attempted a music light Christmas show, and was a huge learning curve. But with your help and generosity we raised just under £320 for charity! The show consisted of the arches and mini-trees only, with the snowmen playing the music.
