Charity Golf Day & Dinner

September 2019

After a Fantastic Result at last year’s Charity Golf Day & Dinner!

We are delighted to announce that booking is now open for this years event on Friday 20th September 2019!

Last year the weather was beautiful and sunny and we had 14 teams enjoying the 18-hole championship course at the Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club followed by a very competitive putting competition! More guests arrived in the evening for a delicious three course dinner and amazing auction.

A massive thank you to all our supporters who came along and donated so generously

Book a Team at our next Charity Golf Day & Dinner

We look forward to seeing you at this  year’s event!

200 Mile Bike Ride! 6th May 2019

Most sane people who attempt to cycle from London to Paris, do so in a 3 days event, however Fredericks CEO Duncan Parker has decided to cycle the distance in 24 hours.  It is 200miles and it is going to hurt!  It is a crazy challenge, Duncan is covering all the costs so all donations will be for the benefit of Fredericks Clients.

You can donate http://bit.ly/2TQmus1

If you haven’t used Give Penny before it is brilliant and secure of course!  It allows you to give  (to join in if you too want to put a few miles in), and help raise funds from your friends if you so desire!

Please give Generously
