All 18 tenants from Somerville Court and 33 tenants from Eliza Mackenzie Court attended the first Chairman’s Lunch of 2018 on Friday 15th July . Some came in fancy dress to the theme of the fifties jive and mods. Buffet Lunch was supplied by local company Melted and the music was provided by the Simpsons Duo.
The raffle raised £210.00 which will be donated to Portsmouth SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen’s Families Association). All who attended said it was a great day and, as always, it was lovely meeting the other board members and their families.
The Eliza Mackenzie Court social group have recently made a presentation to the Hampshire and IOW Air Ambulance.
On Friday 9th March, John from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance was at the court to show a film and talk about what services the air ambulance provides in the area. He was presented with a cheque for the amount of £416.50 which was raised by the tenants throughout 2017 by holding different events in the court. Tea and cakes were supplied at the presentation and many tenants attended throughout the afternoon.
Throughout 2017, £346.50 was raised by the tenants of Eliza Mackenzie Court by doing different events in the court such as raffles, bring and buy sale, an ice bucket challenge, and many more events.
Julie from Rowans spoke about the benefit of the money they receive and how it benefits the centre.
Well done everybody!
