Free Money

Well, that’s got your attention, and it’s no trick. Amazon is genuinely donating some of its mammoth profits directly to charity, and it’s letting people like us decide where the money goes. As of this month, over £1.6M has been disbursed already.

Every page at amazon.co.uk has an almost identical counterpart at smile.amazon.co.uk. So, quite simply, whenever you want to buy something from Amazon you should buy from Smile.Amazon instead because whenever you do, a percentage of your payment will go straight to the charity of your choice. That’s it… there’s nothing more to it. No trick – just money for your chosen charity without even having to ask.

You can help Chilworth Hall by always starting your shopping with this link: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/301782-0

Of course, you may feel that there are more deserving charities than Chilworth Hall. Fair enough.  Just go to Smile.Amazon and make your nomination but, one way or another, but why miss the opportunity to do someone some good with your shopping?

Chilworth Village Fete

The 2019 Chilworth Village Victorian Country Fête will take place on Saturday, 8th June from 2pm-4pm at Fowlers Walk between St Denys church and Chilworth Community Centre (not Chilworth Hall).  Click on the poster for details of all that’s on offer: suffice to say there’s something for everyone, young or old.  All proceeds will go to St Denys Church and the Southampton Sunday Lunch Project.  Donations of raffle prizes or for the stalls will be gratefully received by Barbara Philip (07764 313 739) or Wendy Doherty (07584 245 073).

Chilworth Hall AGM

Notice is hereby given that the next meeting of Chilworth Hall’s management committee will be the AGM at the Hall at 18:00 on Wednesday, 19th June. All residents of Chilworth are entitled to attend and to vote as the chairman and committee members stand for re-election. Anyone wishing to join the committee as a new member should give prior notice by e-mail to the Secretary, Joan Pryde.

The committee is actively seeking new members, particularly those with accounting or bookkeeping skills and experience, or those who wish to get involved in helping to organise events. Membership of the committee is entirely voluntary.

In recent years, the Hall has been significantly refurbished. There is still some work to do, but it is planned to be finished by late summer. After that the intention is to switch focus to making better use of the facilities available, raising money for local charities rather than for the Hall itself (which should now be self-sustaining).
