Howard W(2)

As a member of The Hedgehogs I have been involved in fundraising for many years. Recently I have not been able to help at more active events which The Hedgehogs have undertaken [with huge success] but when I heard about OCTOBEARDFEST – “Established in 2013, OctoBeardFest calls on men to let their beards grow for the month of October, foregoing the razor to raise money for the Guildford, UK-based prostate charity”. I knew that I’d found a way to raise some money to Help Fund Research into Prostate Cancer which will benefit men in Farnham as well as elsewhere. Please consider donating if you or some one you know has been affected by prostrate cancer.

The Hedgehogs mission is  ‘to help local people in need’

What does this mean?  Well, it means we’re in the business of raising funds to help local people in need.  Helping:- Individuals - Families - Single Parents - The Disabled and other Local Groups and Charities.

We are a Registered Charity established over 50 years ago with a mission to benefit the community of Farnham and the surrounding areas. Our membership is over 50 strong and included in our fund raising  is the  joint organisation of the Farnham Carnival with the Farnham Lions.

Over the past 10 years we have raised over £400,000 pounds which has been distributed locally. The Hedgehogs running costs are paid for by members and friends so that all the funds raised are used solely for good causes. We work closely with other Farnham organisations involved in similar work.

Social events are held regularly where members, friends and supporters, can come together to discuss the future direction of the charity. We discuss how the organisation can be more effective in both fund raising and improving ways we can support those in need in the local community of Farnham!

Please  join us!

Suffice to say there's  never a dull moment when he's  around and he can more often than not  be seen in action at most events.
