Grindon Parish Hall - Annual Charity Event


Trustees are planning to hold the Inaugral Grindon Parish Hall Annual Charity Event at the hall on 29 November 2024. 


Trustees are asking local businesses to donate prizes that we can raffle / auction to raise funds to enable trustees to continue to maintain the Hall, support the community and extend our offer to provide a weekly Youth Service facility; and a weekly ‘coffee, cake and chat’ session for residents to drop into a warm, safe space and meet fellow residents and chat or play cards, bridge, dominoes, chess or draughts, or host a book club.


We have to date secured a number of pledges of support ..... watch this space for further details of prizes that have been donated through the kind support of businesses and for further details of the event.
