Tuesday 23rd May 2017 – Chairman’s Presentation

It was a real honour to be invited to the Election of the new Chair of Watford Council, Jaktar Singh as the former Chair, Councillor Darren Walford stood down.

It was a formal occasion but there was good humour as the proceedings took place. The culmination of the event was the presentation of the cheques to Darren’s two nominated charities, for whom he has raised a record-breaking amount.

Each charity received £4172.33. Watford Workshop and The MGDF are both very fortunate to have had Darren and his lovely wife, Tanya working so hard to raise funds for us throughout their year in office. We offer our heartfelt thanks for all their efforts and to everyone who has supported their events.

Friday 5th May 2017 – Chairman’s Civic Reception

As one of his nominated charities, we were delighted to be invited to the Chair of Watford Council’s Civic Reception at West Herts Golf Club.

Chairman Darren Walford and his Consort Tanya were the perfect hosts at this prestigious event, welcoming notable guests, friends and family, as well as his chosen charity representatives which included ourselves as well as Watford Workshop.

We were entertained with music and table magic and after a delicious three-course dinner came the raffle with many donated prizes from local companies, sports centre, hotels and restaurants.

Many thanks to Darren and Tanya for making us feel very welcome and for helping us to bring our charity to a wider audience.

Saturday 25th March 2017 – Wot? No Fish!!

at The Radlett Centre

Danny Braverman’s solo show tells the funny and moving story of how he discovered the lost art of his Great-uncle Ab. Wot? No Fish!! is an extraordinary story about love and art, history and fish balls.

Huge thanks to Danny for bringing this charming show to Radlett and sharing his story with us.

We also held a raffle on the night and altogether, with your help, of course, we raised £8000, split between The MGDF and our partners for this event, Jellybabies.

Many thanks to all who donated raffle prizes and those who bought tickets and helped on the night – the occasion was a huge success and we look forward to holding more events at The Radlett Centre again soon.
