Lottery Draw February 2020

image of lottery drawEvery month there’s a chance to win a Village Centre Lottery prize and also the chance to have that warm glow feeling that you’re helping raise funds for the Village Centre. Why raise funds? Because we are constantly trying to improve the level of equipment at the Centre, so that it becomes an even better resource for the community.  For example, just yesterday we bought a new fridge to stand in the corner of the Garden Room, so that users can keep their food and drink cool in the warmer weather. Please keep up the good work, we need your support!

The most recent draw of Lottery prizewinners was made on Tuesday 4th February 2020 at our popular community lunch. Winners are as follows:

First prize, number 29 winning £28.50. Second prize number 55 winning £19.00 and third prize number 28 winning £9.50. Congratulations to the lucky prize winners. Subscribe to our Lottery and you could join those winners, plus you’ll be giving us a big helping hand. Thank you!

November Draw of the Village Centre Lottery

There is much more that still needs to be done. More tables and chairs, improved audio-visual equipment, better kitchen facilities for our community lunches and other events, the list goes on.  A building like the Village Centre always needs something doing to it – redecorating, bumper strips to stop chairs damaging the walls, as soon as something gets ticked off the list, something else goes on the bottom!

So, please help us by continuing to support the Lottery and by joining if you haven’t already. All the information can be found on our website Fundraising page, where there’s a Subscribe button which let’s you set up an online payment of £5 per month. Or, there are links to a form which you can print off and post or take to the Centre. We really do need you!

Ceilidh Success!

ceilidh imageOur fund-raising Ceilidh and Barn Dance was held on the evening of Saturday 26th October and was a great success. Despite the rather damp weather, around 100 eager dancers gathered in the main hall of the Village Centre and enjoyed a great time with Ceilidh band Whirligig. During the evening, while the band took a break, a superb hot supper was served by the DVCA catering team.

Our thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make the event such a success. Setting up tables and chairs, cooking a meal, serving behind the bar and cleaning up afterwards, it all has to be done by our team of willing helpers. Which reminds me – we need to add to that team, so if you can help, please get in touch by sending an email to contact@dersinghamvillagecentre.org.uk

Whirligig have already been booked for our next Ceilidh on  Saturday 24th October 2020. Put that in your diary!
