QHOF donates to Medical Detection Dogs

QHOF Medical Detection Dogs

This year we were able to give the Medical Detection Dogs charity £3,500 towards their very deserving and needed work. Generous sponsorship of the pram race along with money donated on the day by members of the public raised the highest amount ever from a pram race.

You will doubtless be aware of the tragic accident that occurred this year resulting in the sad death of Francis ‘Titch’ O’Sullivan. His family and friends have been incredibly supportive of the event in this difficult period and even chose the Pram Race charity as one of their donations along with The Air Ambulance.

Stand by for news of the Summer event that we are planning for July. Here’s a taster of last year’s event – tickets will go on sale very soon!

Best wishes,

QHOF

Sutton Valence Pram Race 2017

Queens Head Oddfellows Fund members wish to offer their sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Francis (Titch) O’Sullivan at this very sad time.

The police are investigating the circumstances and reporting to the coroner and we expect to be assisting them with these enquiries in the near future.

That is all we can say at the moment. Thank you.

We recently spent the evening with the members of Hayley’s Heroes to hand over the proceeds from our very successful Summer Ball, held back in August.

We were very happy to present them with a cheque for £10,300.

A spokesperson for Hayley’s Heroes wrote:

“We are all still completely overwhelmed and from the bottom of our hearts we can’t thank QHOF enough”

QHOF have played a fundamental part in the fundraising efforts of Hayley’s Heroes with this years proceeds from the Pram Race also donated towards this most deserving of causes.

QHOF have had the pleasure of working with the Hayley’s Heroes team since their creation and we look forward to continuing this journey in the future.

The last word from Haley’s Heroes:

To every single one of the QHOF… You are simply amazing 💛

QHOF Ball 2016

On Saturday 6th August QHOF hosted their immensely popular ball for 250 guests.

This year the ball was in aid of local charity Hayley’s Heroes who offer young adults with cancer and their close family and friends a helping hand when they need it and to let them know that they are not alone in their fight.

We are still counting the pennies at the moment, but are confident that we have raised a significant sum for this very deserving local cause.

Here are a few photographs from the evening – enjoy!
