Cabaret Nights – Roaring Success

Our sell out Cabaret evenings were a roaring success!  Both evenings were completely sold out. Thank you to everyone involved and to everyone who came. The evenings were so successful they raised £3400 for our fund. 

Don’t forget that there is another cabaret evening booked for December – we expect even greater demand for these tickets so remember to get them early to avoid disappointment!

Mouse Racing a Runaway Success!

On Saturday 23-Jun, SWAG held their first fundraising event at Stanton Drew Village Hall.

A sell-out crowd enjoyed a few drinks, a delicious supper and some top notch rodent racing. Thanks to some tightly-negotiated (and allegedly secret) pre-race sponsorship deals, plus some vigorous bidding by certain individuals, we raised a total of £1400 which will contribute to the legal costs accumulated so far.

Big thanks go out to everyone who attended, but especially to Julie Bragg and Jane Thatcher for the organsisation, and Jim Farmer for compering and commentating in his inimitable style.

The next events are the Cabaret Nights on 25th and 26th August and the Valley Green Belt Show on Saturday 1st Sept.

Party In The Paddock

….watch this space – we are planning a really big launch for our fund raising. An afternoon and evening family event with live music, good food and fun for all ages….

Do you know of any local bands that would give half hour of their time for free? Please get them to email us. We hope to have the whole time covered with local bands playing. Do you know of a club that has a band – would they like a half hour slot?

We are working fast to get this event finalised – we will have more information very very soon.

Clothes Collection

Have a good clear out and bag up your clean unwanted clothes.

We are collecting bags of unwanted clothing and will be able to exchange them for money to help with our fundraising.

  • Either drop bin bags of clean unwanted clothes off at The Winding House, Wick Lane, Stanton Wick.
  • Or  email us and we will come and collect.


So far we have made £200 from selling the ‘nearly new’ items and £300 from our first bag collection – there is plenty more to be made yet!!

Thank you.
