This year, we are supporting The MacMillan Cancer Coffee morning. It’s Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where people across the UK hold a coffee morning and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2012 115,000 people signed up, raising a record £15 million. This year as Friends, we’d like to support such a worthy endeavour and would like you to join us if you can.
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. It is likely, that you or someone you know have been affected by cancer. In the estate, many ordinary men and women have been affected. I know the story of one resident whose husband succumb to cancer. She says the MacMillan Angels made all the difference! Lets contribute to others story by making it possible to get help until the last moment.
We are teaming up with Hanif at the Kodak and the London Wormholt and White City Lions Club to hold the Coffee Morning. Hanif have kindly donated the front of his store from 10 – 4pm for the day! Christine from the White City Estate have been busy spreading the word. A few local businessmen have also chipped in some cakes and baklava! All we’re missing is your support! So, drop by and support a worthy cause. If you can not be there, but would like to support the cause, please contact us by emailing: email@example.com

In April 2011 the Committee set three years goals for the Friends group:
- Secure a permanent resource area for Friends within the park
- Increase biodiversity of nature and wildlife in the park
- Improve the opinion of the park by users
- Increase the usage of the park
- Hold events for local residents in the park.
Our Annual Report 2012 – 2013 summarises our progress against these objectives.
Starting at 11am, The Dogs Trust will be there with a range of exciting agility exercises for your dog, plus FREE micro-chipping.
Topping the day will be the judged dog competition starting at 12 noon, once again expertly overseen by international judge and breeder David Spencer.
Registration is FREE on the day and there will be prizes for winners kindly donated by purplebone in the following categories:
- Most handsome dog
- Prettiest bitch
- Dog most like its owner
- Best dog trick
- Best veteran
- Overall ‘Best in Show’
The Friends of Wormholt Park will have its red gazebo up with refreshments available plus FREE face painting for the kids.
We will also be holding our AGM starting at 2pm. So, come and hear the review of our second year, the latest on the park redevelopment and meet the new Committee members.
