On 8th July we joined Rotary Members on their stand at the Astwood Bank Carnival to raise some funds by selling cakes. Thank you to everyone who baked, donated and helped. Rotary were promoting their organisation by holding some “strong man” games. They were very profitable and attracted men and boys and girls too! Having had to arrive and set up early, because the roads were closed for the float parade, we had an hour or two to while away our time with a lazy lunch and chat before the crowds arrived. We had a sell-out – a great way to boost the charity funds.
Members from Redditch along with the 1st Redditch Brigades enjoyed a great afternoon out doing a walk in support of Beat recently
There were 61 Adults and Children with an age range of 3-79, plus 10 very well behaved dogs.The route took them up the steep bank towards Hanbury Church, past the estates “old coach house”, now a private home and into the grounds of Hanbury Hall, in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside.
They were very grateful to all the Brigade officers, members’ girls and boys, parents, friends and family who took part.
