Welcoming Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice as our charity
6 April 2013
As some of you will remember, the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice was Twestival Farnham's nominated charity last time around... and it is again this year. This is because it serves the area with a stoic, wonderful and very generous service for individuals within our community during some of their darkest days and it needs our support.
Daily 140 patients and carers are supported in their own homes and at the Hospice, free of charge, yet the NHS covers less than 12% of their costs - this is under half the national average for hospices. Consequently the Phyllis Tuckwell has to fundraise 88p in every pound that they need to spend. And in order to continue to offer the excellent standard of clinical care and support they need to raise over £15,000.00 per day making fundraising activity essential.
So, who's in?....
Please get in touch - we'd love to have your support.... the more the merrier to raise these much needed funds for a much needed charity that supports Farnham and the surrounding area.
Welcome to Twestival Farnham 2013
6 April 2013
And yes...... we're back!
For the third year, I'm proud to say that Farnham is once again hosting Twestival this year. It's early days - the date has yet to be set and the team not quite mobilised but our thinking caps are well and truly on. Watch this space for updates!
Top of our 'want' list is sponsorship - this will enable us to put on a party that will set the town a toe-tapping and a-money-raising. So, if you or your company is interested in helping us in this way, please get in touch ASAP!
If you would like to get involved, please do so through the main Twestival site or Tweet us at @TwestivalFarnhm (and yes we know that there is an 'a' in FarnhAm but we've had to leave it out due to Twitter's character limit), or direct to @AbigailH.
The next blog post update will be announcing which local charity we'll be raising money for! Exciting times.
Over and out! @AbigailH

There once was a young girl from Farnham
She loved to just sit there and write
Addicted to twitter; she’d endlessly witter
And chatter and tweet through the night
She never got dressed in the morning
Her poor house just never got cleaned
She’d follow the trends then she’d count up her friends
She was hardly away from her screen
One day she cooked a nice dinner,
Well…she started, but then she forgot
She looked all around; found her house had burned down
And said “Bugger - I thought it was hot”.
