Evening – Lancing’s Got Talent! Do you like to sing, dance, perform? Does everyone think you are a comedian? Fancy showing others what you can do? Your friends telling you that you can sing/dance/entertain, but haven’t tried in public? Please let the stewards know if you are interested in performing and sharing your Talent with the other campers. Don’t worry, Simon Cowell is not booked for the evening – its all just for fun! One rule is that it must be suitable for a family audience!
This year we will be supporting the Alzheimer’s Society as our chosen charity. Set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer, dementia will affect us all. But we can beat it. Together. Every action will bring us closer to finding a cure and giving everyone the support they need. In 2015/16 for every £1 received by the Alzheimer’s Society, 89p was spent directly on improving the lives of people with dementia, and the other 11p went towards generating future income. You will probably know someone who has suffered or is suffering with this terrible condition which isn’t just about memory loss, but with your help people living with dementia can lead active, purposeful lives and carry on doing the things that matter to them most.
So what can you, our members do to help? Well we run a bookstall at Lancing, so if you have any books that you no longer need or have already read, bring them along, either to Lancing of previously to one of our other meets and pass them to a member of the committee. Fact, Fiction, Children’s, Reference, it doesn’t matter as it may well be just what someone is looking for.
We will also have a raffle, so if you have any “as new” or good condition items that you keep forgetting to put on e bay, camping oriented or otherwise, again bring them along to Lancing or pass them to a committee member beforehand. (If they are large or bulky, please email one of us prior to make sure we have room to accommodate if bringing beforehand).
We will be running the Great Lancing Bake Off (which has not changed channels) so get practicing your cake making, and as usual, all proceeds from the sale of your cakes after judging has taken place will go towards the charity.
