‘Helping  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 Organisations, Schools   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 £450,000 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!
