2008 – Donations

The Hayling Island Businessmens Club have been busy giving away money from the profits of their successful Barbecue at Northney Farm in the summer.

Wally Egan, who sadly died last year was a founder member of the club and a fun loving, caring man who cared for the community and believed in youth’s future.

We have initiated an annual prize in his memory at Hayling College to recognise individual effort and enterprise. This year the winner was Lisa Haines, who received the annual Rose Bowl and a cheque for £100 from Wally’s widow, Enid.

Further grants include; £400 to Street Sport to encourage children and youth to participate in sport.
£250 for a sophisticated hearing aid for a Hayling College pupil.
£250 to St Andrews Church Hall for a keyboard for Community use.
£200 to Hayling Ladies Football club.
£200 to Hayling Fencing club.
£200 to Hayling Blind club towards their Annual Dinner

We also continue to support H.I.A.D’s by purchasing tickets and distribute them free to the elderly and deserving . We have set the date for next years ABBA tribute dinner and dance at Sinah Warren on 19th April 2009 and the Northney Barbecue on July 11th 2009.
