Our committee was started in July 1995 with a committee of four:
Moira Broom
Pat Devito French
Elizabeth Wade
Carol Woolner

Since those early fund-raising events we now have a Chiswick Garden Party, bi-annual Tennis Tournaments, a Soup Kitchen and the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, around which we programme Supper Quizzes, Concerts, Bridge Afternoons and a comedy night. Individuals have also cycled Scottish hills, abseiled in West Ham and walked the Thames towpath.

Our committee is now 11 and that is reflected in the amount we now raise: the generosity of the committee and time they give (they cook and donate all the food and canap├ęs!) is supplemented by the Raffle and Auction Prizes they beg, steal and donate. Without that generosity we could not persuade others to be generous too.

  • To give pleasure and value to our supporters. We rarely ask for donations without offereing entertainment with hospitality
  • To ensure that the money we raise goes to local community services. We are currently sponsoring the giving of small grants to people in West London who are facing financial hardship as a consequence of their cancer diagnosis.

Our Committee today:

Libby Balch
