Pro-fit Windows sponsors charity fun day at the Harrow
1:44pm Tuesday 10th August 2010 in Your Say
By Tracey Martin at Pro-fit Windows Ltd on Leatherhead Road
Pro-fit Windows Ltd are proud to support our Soldiers;
We are sponsoring six RAF lads from 216 squadron to raise money for servicemen and women flying home from Afghanistan on RAF TriStar aircraft operated by 216 Squadron.
And; The Bell House Ward of the John Radcliff hospital in Oxford who deal with Cardio respiratory patients.
In order to raise money for these worthy causes six members of the squadron lead by Stephen Porter & James Booth are planning an arduous drive from Tamworth to RAF Gibraltar and back in two Reliant Robins. (3600 miles) To support them we are holding a family fun day in conjunction with The Harrow pub Leatherhead Road Chessington Surrey 14th August 2010.
The customised Reliant Robin cars will be on display and we shall be having live music by ‘Rosanna’ and later a disco, a bar-be-que, face painting, bouncy castle.
There will be a charity auction and raffle. Local businesses in the community have been really generous and we have a host of great prizes that include Theatre & Concert tickets, Signed England Cricket bat from the South African tour and signed football shirts.
An HD Colour television, vouchers for Jon Garrod hair stylists, The Regent Restaurant & Chessington World of Adventures, a case of wine, home-made chocolates and lots more goodies.
We have invited the local youth teams we sponsor; Chessington Sports Club under 15’s football team and The New Malden Magpies Rugby team and they will be coming along to join in the fun we hope as many of the local residents will come along and support us.
Sadly this will be the last charity event that the ‘The Harrow’ will be hosting as it is due to close on the 5th September 2010.
This is a great blow for the local community not just the regulars but the parents of St Philips School who use the car-park when dropping off and collecting their children and for the local businesses and builders who use the pub as a meeting place, also for the charities that have benefitted from other fund raising events that have been held here.
It is so sad to see this landmark go.
