Bringing you up to date on the latest happenings of Fakenham Ukes. Along with most of the population, we at Fakenham Ukes will be taking part in the Jubilee celebrations. We have been invited to join in the fun at several venues over the four day National Holiday. Beginning in the village of Wicken Green on Thursday 2nd June at 1.15 pm in the Community Hall.

  The following day, Friday 3rd June we shall be sharing the fun with the people of Sculthorpe, in the village hall at 1.45pm until 2.30 pm. Then after a frantic dash, we shall be entertaining the people of South Creake in their village hall, beginning at 4.15 pm until 6.30 pm.  Finally, to round off a great day of music and singing with a special private performance at Walsingham Shrine at 7.30 pm. 

  On Sunday, 4th June, we draw our musical meanderings to close with a visit to Wells-Next-The-Sea, at The Buttlands. Commencing at 1,0pm, and lasting until our leader drops the whip. After all our efforts we shall be watching eagerly for the postman, with the letter from Buckingham Palace as to, who gets the knighthood and who gets the medals.    

 Look out for more stop press news on The Fakenham Ukes web site.

LATEST LOCAL DONATIONS 

Fakenham Ukes' most recent donation was made at the club meeting on Tuesday 17th May. The photos show our group leader, Graham Thomas, presenting a cheque for £500 to Camilla Aston-Evans and her two children. Camilla's partner was recently killed in a road accident so Fakenham Ukes members felt a donation to the family would be useful to them in these difficult times.

Fakenham Ukes were discussing the terrible situation in Ukraine and,  like many people wanted to help. Laurie Coburn and Joanna Smith were entrusted with the donating of £1000 from our charity fund to the Disasters Emergency Committee . This is the umbrella organisation for charities in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe who set up centres of refuge, help with transport, medication and support for all those seeking help.

Since the above donation was made Fakenham Ukes has also donated its proceeds from the recent Barsham Brewery Street Food Evening. Our fee for the event and the very generous donations made by the people who came along amounted to a sum in excess of £330. This sum has also been donated via the Disasters Emergency Committee to help the people of Ukraine.
