At the AGM in December, members voted to support

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance

as our Charity for 2019


Saturday May 4th 2019 

We announced our intention to hold a sponsored walk – along the Castleman Trailway – in support of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance at our AGM in December 2019.

The route followed the course of the old railway line, starting at Upton House in Poole and finished in Ringwood.

We set off from Upton House at 9.00 am with refreshment breaks at The Willett Arms at Merley, The Old Thatch at Stapehill, West Moors Memorial Hall Car Park and Ashley Heath. A route covering 17 miiles.

The official end of the trailway is at Hurn Lane, Ringwood but those still standing carried on to the Star Inn on Ringwood High Street. 

The total raised was an amazing  £3800.00. A cheque was presented at the airbase day on Saturday 14th September.

The FU3A Drama group entertained us with two wonderful performances of their Pantomime, “Windy Hill.”

Congratulations to everyone who took part. A fantastic £580 was raised and everyone had a great time.

A big ‘thank you’ to all the bridge players who helped raise £126 in aid of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, our FU3A Charity of the Year 2019, on Saturday afternoon.

This is a great result!  Special thanks go to Jenny, Brian and Ann who organised it all so efficiently.
