A magnificent total of £4,573.86 has been presented on 20th August 2013 to The Soldiers' Charity and The Battens Charitable Trust from the Summer Wine Tasting. Each charity received £2,286.93 and the funds will be used both to support members of the Armed Forces and their families, as well as helping a number of local and youth charities.
Thank you to all our auction and raffle sponsors too, without whom this huge amount would not have been possible to raise.
Our last event, supported by The Eastbury Hotel, Ernest Hart Marquees and Battens Solicitors, was held in 2011 and raised £4,400 HELP FOR HEROES. We had a fabulous evening and raised a huge amount for charity, so a big thanks to all our sponsors, supporters, customers and friends!
Over the past 8 years Vineyards has helped raise more than £25,000 for local and Armed Forces charities through the generosity of customers and suppliers along with the many local companies who have kindly donated services and auction or raffle prizes.
