The Cheque Presentation Evening,

at the Home Cottage, Redhill

on the 27th October 2009

The Home Cottage PH in Redhill on the evening of Tuesday 27th, was the venue for the official cheque presentation by the Committee of the Redhill and Reigate Carnival, to their five nominated charities.

Mayor Richard Mantle and the Chair of the Carnival Fran Giles, made a joint presentation of a £5,000 cheque, giving £1,000 to each of the beneficiaries. The Committee also announced that legacy funding of £2,500 would be carried forward to help secure the future of the Carnival, and expressed their hopes that this would start a pattern of continued investment into its future.

The evening was chaired by John Gooden, and attended by Carnival Committee members Sarah Fitzer, Collette Barber and Sharon Scotton, and representatives of the local business community who had sponsored the Carnival weekend, as well as interested parties and participants. Also in attendance were Borough Councillor Julian Ellacott, who had so generously donated his £1,000 community grant to the Carnival, and County Councillor Peter Lambell, who surprised the attendees by offering to make a donation from his grant towards the 2011 Carnival.

Mike Ward from Age Concern, Merstham, Redhill and Reigate said he was delighted to accept his cheque for £1,000, and explained in detail exactly what a difference it would make to his charity. Maisie Scotton and Will Goulder, delivered a confident speech, which was testament to the benefits of Orbit Shed’s work as an inclusive theatre for young people.

Five willing volunteers signed up to play their part in the next Committee, and the outgoing Committee were keen to stress that ‘more’ was definitely ‘merrier’. If you would like to play an active part in the next Carnival please complete the registration form.

Thank you

To all our sponsors, participants, volunteers and last minute heroes for making the 2009 Carnival such a huge success.
