On a wet and unusually windy Saturday in November we raised just over £200 at the Cranleigh School Christmas Fair. Our thanks to all the people who came out and bought things from the stall. The Christmas chutney was our best seller this year. The money will be used for the Christmas Party and fund the hire of the Village Hall in Shalford for our new monthly meetings.
Jo took ‘elf and safety to the fast track!
One of our loyal supporters – and a former committee member of Second Chance – took the idea of ‘elf and safety to a new level just before Christmas.
Jo Brown celebrated her 48th birthday by running 10km around Camberley and Frimley in Surrey on a cold day on December 14 – dressed as an elf!
Her brave efforts raised £35 for Second Chance. Thanks, Jo!

We are a small Charity and wouldn’t be able to do the things that we do without the support of our members and donors.
Donations allow us to run a monthly drop in group at St. Catherine’s village Hall.
They also fund social events such as our Annual Summer and Christmas Parties.
One donor paid for the food for the Christmas party because having a dry mouth herself “I know how hard it is sometimes to chew and swallow foods that are provided at most events. I wanted people to have lots of choice so they could find something that they fancy eating”.
Another paid for some LCD writing tablets as she could not imagine how hard it was for people recovering from head and neck surgery to communicate in the early days of their recovery. ”it seemed like such a small thing but I wanted to do something after my friend had throat surgery and I realised she needed to write everything down and never had paper and pen.”
Thanks to some very generous gifts we were planning a wider range of activities for 2020. Unfortunately these have been put on hold due to the pandemic. We will start again when it is safe to do so. We’re looking forward to it.
