2nd Fundraising Curry Evening.

Sunday, 6pm 26th April.

This time it will take place at Le Raj restaurant on the London road in Leigh between The Elms pub and Bellinis. The charge will be £12 again, and as before, there will be a good selection of dishes. Please bring a deposit of £6 per person to the next meeting. Contact Anne either by email or on Facebook to let her know how many to expect, and book for.

We will be running a raffle and would welcome all donations of prizes.

Also please try and bring along as many guests as possible, friends and family, as this all helps with our fundraising to cover the annual costs of running the club.

We have one further External Competition and that is The Maldon Challenge on 11th April. This is an excellent competition, well organised and presented by the host Club consisting of Mono Prints and colour/mono DPI’s. All mono prints are displayed for guests to wander around and view before judging commences and the DPI presentation commences after the break. Maldon has a number of eateries if anyone would like to make up a group for a social outing before the serious business of the Competition.
