Thames Valley Air Ambulance
For the next 12 months all our fund-raising efforts will be in support of the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, a charity providing emergency medical services by air and land to patients within Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
They don't receive any funding from the government or the National Lottery and depend entirely upon donations and fundraising from the public, serving a community of over 2 million people.
First up, the chilli festival and 4 categories to enter this year:
- Pickles & Jams
An amazing turn-out, who knew Ed was a Mary Berry fan?
Thanks everyone for cooking, baking and crafting - a real team effort raising a spectacular £115 for TVAA.
Also, a huge thanks to our judges from Bistrot Pierre who had the misfortune to be in the office and of course our resident chilli-aficionado Dav who always enters into the spirit.
What better way to meet the neighbours and get into the festive spirit than hosting a mulled wine and mince-pie get together.
Thanks to some great donations, the charity raffle raised over £200 - although some of the winners were very jammy, taking home Champagne AND chocolates.
It's the Chinese year of the Rat - a sign of wealth and surplus.
Rats are considered clever, quick thinkers and very successful - just not sure we want them living under the floorboards.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for lunch. We raised a further £90 for our Thames Valley Air Ambulance charity box, we're almost halfway to our target £1000.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
Our pop-up pancake parlour does us proud - Happy Pancake Day
