2018 – August Report

HIBC Report for August – Bruce Mowatt HIBC Publicity

The club members work together to ensure that we maintain enough funds to continue donations to local good causes and operating the Community Mini-bus which is provided without cost to the bus users. We receive income from our organised annual events, including the BBQ, Pig racing, street collections etc. The club funds also benefit from donations received from local organisations. I am pleased to declare a donation of £3500 was gratefully received from the Lions to contribute to the community bus project.

Representative club members were invited to the Hayling College to present the HIBC annual awards to the worthy winners of the Sports person of the year and for male and female Drama.

Our next major event is the popular Pig racing held at the Community centre this is on Saturday 17th November 2018. Please ensure you note the event in your diary, and it is a good fun evening.

With the dust finally settling on this year’s BBQ our club treasurer reported an overall increase to the club funds of more than £4000. Please rest assured that your support is greatly appreciated, and every penny raised, contributes to the Community bus project, and other worthwhile local causes.

Use of the Community bus continues to be in high demand on week days, but normally there is some availability at weekends. Local organisations are welcome to contact Trevor Slydell at minibus@hibc.org.uk for more details. Please remember that use of the bus is offered completely free of any charge. You must provide you own driver who needs to be no more than 70 years of age.
