Please see the note below. This is a very worthy charity and it would be a shame if we are unable to collect this year due to Covid restrictions. David Harris has kindly offered to coordinate a collection, so please if you can help to bring a little bit of Christmas joy please feel free to do so.
‘Dear Friends, as many of you will know, each year Margret Preece has run a ‘Christmas Card Amnesty’ collection in support of The Snowdrop Trust (a local charity for the care of children with life-threatening illnesses). Collectively members have typically donated between £200 and £250 to this extremely worthy cause. This year, of course, we cannot run the cash collection in the same way. However, if you wish you may make a donation this year via the Chichester Camera Club (or, of course, you may wish to donate to the charity direct). If you would like to donate via the club, please send your payment by bank transfer to
A/c name: Chichester Camera Club
Reference: Snowdrop Trust
A/c No: 31575960
Sort code: 30-93-97
We will take donations up to the end of December after which I will forward the total sum to The Snowdrop Trust from the members with our best wishes for a happier 2021′.
This is probably the last newsletter of 2020 so on behalf of myself and the management committee, I’d like to wish you all the compliments of the season and hope that you have the best Christmas you can. Roll on 2021 and I look forward to seeing you all back at Tangmere as soon as is possible.
