The sensational Johnny Vegas & Onyx Cafe Cheltenham, held a sell out fundraiser for us in October 2022.

Around 100 people enjoyed a huge night filled with great food, friendly faces and epic entertainment. 

Many happy people left with prizes won through the raffles & auction.

All up $1,984 was raised which is a significant help with our ongoing aid relief. Many thanks to all involved!

We held our annual auction fundraiser on 30 October. A record 142 people bid this year and we raised $11,086. This equates to thousands of items for people in need.
