Charity work at the Municipal Club!
All who came to the charity night had a fantastic night with 6 artists providing the entertainment. The Municipal club would like to thank both Hawthorn and Tony Lidster entertainments for their support on the night and a big thank you to the artists. A special thanks to Craig Williams for his invaluable efforts in obtaining raffle prizes for the event. A total of £1240.00 was raised on the night which will be shared equally between Velindre Fundraising and Cardiff and Newport SANDS.
The Club's official annual charity fund raising evening raising £1500 for the local charity POPSY (www.popsy.org.uk). The evening held on Thursday 26th September was an amazing success with fantastic entertianment provided by Hawthorn Entertainments. The Municipal Club would like to thank everyone for supporting the evening and also to the companies who donated prizes for our charity auction and raffle. We're looking forward to the next club charity evening sometime next year.
The Municipal Club's latest fund raising event comes with a twist. 3 members of the club (including 2 members of the Management Committee) have committed to taking part in the UK's first "Dryathlon", raising money for Cancer Research UK. Andrew Hall, Peter Kemp and Chris Field have each voluntarily committed to stop drinking alcohol for the month of January. From the 1st to the 31st, the team (christened The Muni Madheads) aim to raise as much money as possible for the charity. All they ask throughout this period is literally for you to "not buy them a drink". Instead, for the cost of a beer at the club (currently £2.40 for Carling and £2.20 for Worthington) be donated to Cancer Research UK. Sponsorship forms and sealed collection tins are available in the club for all those who wish to donate.
The team have raised in excess of £700 so far. For more details, please see the posters in the club or visit the Dryathlon homepage here.
In February 2012, a club fund raising event raised more than £5000 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) Charity Military Patients Fund. Entertainment Secretary Robert Markey chose the charity after his daughter spent four months in QEHB when she contracted necrotitis fasciitis ten days after giving birth to her second child Leo Harry, in February 2011. The event in, association with the FareDeal Entertainments agency, raised £2554.60 and the Club's Management Committee decided to match this, which meant a total of £5109.20 was raised for the charity. The Club even made the front page of the CIU Club Journal in July 2012! More details of the event can be found here in a local press article.
