Summer Fun Day at RAF Benson


An amazing day was enjoyed by the sixty or so children and their families who attended RAF Benson on August 14th.

A huge ‘Thank You’ to all those in 33 Squadron who organised the day, and for their wonderful hospitality.

The £140 that was raised by the squadron’s sponsored run really was “the icing on the cake.”

Christmas 2012 Party


Over a hundred children, parents and their families enjoyed a fabulous Young Hearts Christmas party held last December at Tingewick Hall at the John Radcliffe.

Yvonne Thomas, committee member and key organiser, was delighted at the result:

Apart from everyone having a special day, we managed to raise £868 from our tombola, raffle, auction and personal donations.

All the children were delighted by a visit from Father Christmas, each receiving a special present. As you can see they all sang and clapped during an impromptu concert given by visiting pantomime characters.

Looking at their faces you can observe many benefi tted from the face painting and nail bar activities.

A very big ‘Thank You’ to all who helped us make this a very special festive day.
