Despite the heat, on Wednesday 17th July 2013, 11 people braved the warm annexe of Southwick Village Hall for a fun evening of German board games and coffee and cake! Apart from having a lot of fun, we also raised £52.00 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Add the £15 we raised during our Advent singing in December gives a total of £67.00 – as the saying goes ‘every little helps’!
The first charity event was on Wednesday 20 March 2013 – a German Board Game Evening in aid of Macmillan.
Ten people had great fun playing games, speaking German and raising £75 – DANKE!
