On behalf of the Parwich Independent Welfare Fund….

On Saturday January 29th, Parwich Legion allowed us to hold a fundraising event in their club room, hosted by the Oddfellows, to raise money for the fund which supports members of our community when they need it.

The event was so well supported that we managed to raise a total of £2,380, which is a fantastic amount. A major part of this was the auction, which raised £1,060.

We would like to thank all those who donated all the raffle prizes, auction produce, knitted products, and cash donations we received, we were absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of items donated in support of our cause. We would equally like to thank all those people who bought tickets for our event and varying raffles, draws and the quiz as well as those who made winning bids for our auction lots (and those who helped to get the bids up) and all those who supported us on the night.

We would also like to thank the following who helped make this event run so smoothly:

  • The Loyal and Laurel Crown Lodge (Parwich Oddfellows) Bill, Rob, Jimmy, Mick and Roy for staffing the BBQ, managing our ticket sales, delivery leaflets and supporting us throughout.
  • Rob for running the Mr and Mistress competition,
  • ”Dolly Dealer” Gill,
  • Karen for helping with the raffle,
  • Auctioneer legend Paul
  • Bar-person extraordinaire Sarah for keeping all the glasses full.
  • Parwich Legion for allowing us told hold the event, for their generous donation and for supporting our ticket offer.

Some of the night’s winners were:

  • Guess the name of the bear: Dave S
  • 4.5 gallon bottle of whisky: John W
  • Mr and Mistress: Jacqui J and Alan S
  • Quiz: 1st Lucy M, 2nd The Brants, joint 3rd Janice W & Ed L.
  • Play Your Cards Right “big winners”: James S and Carl W

If you’d like to see the quiz with (or without) the answers click on the appropriate link below:

Thanks again,

Carl and Emma.

The Parwich Oddfellows are holding a charity event at the Legion on Saturday 29th January. The event will raise money for Parwich Independent Welfare Fund. The sole purpose of the Welfare Fund is to provide help and support to people and on occasion to groups and societies in the village. Traditionally the funds have been raised through the annual harvest festival auction; however, this hasn’t happened for the last two years (due to COVID) and so funds are very depleted.

Details of the event and timings etc. will be posted shortly, but for now please put the date in your diary!

Sorry, this event has been cancelled.

We will try to arrange something later in the year to raise money for the Welfare Fund.

Parwich welfare fund is planning to make a recipe booklet to raise money for our village fund. Money raised will go towards helping people from our village who are in need, this could be anything from buying logs for someone or just a bunch of flowers when someone is poorly or feeling low.

In due course we will be asking village residents for their favourite tried and tested recipes! For now we are looking for a cost effective way to have the books printed as we need to make as much money for the fund as possible ( we will be selling them for approximately £5 each). It could be a stapled booklet or ring bound format, approx. 50 pages with a small image per recipe. If anyone has any contacts or knows of a reasonable printer then we would really appreciate your help. We have already tried instaprint on line, Derby university and Ashbourne business centre.

If you can help, please contact Lucy Burlinson at tigercheeks@hotmail.co.uk or 390 112.

Thank you 😊
