Join us for a piano music marathon, a cuppa (maybe a cake too) and a browse of the book stall. You don’t have to stay for the whole twelve hours!
Queniborough’s Megan R and family are fundraising for MfM’s Tree Twinning, linking our village’s trees with trees in Madagascar.
“In Madagascar 80% of the plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth. Tree Twinning directly protects biodiversity, mitigates climate change, and strengthens communities. We don’t just plant trees and walk away. We work with the communities who plant the trees so that both people and plants flourish together, sustainably.”
MfM (Money for Madagascar)
The pianothon starts at 8:00 AM in St Mary’s Church, Queniborough and moves to Queniborough Village Hall at 11:00 AM. There will be piano playing across the whole 12 hours with special guests and other musicians from the village taking part. We’d love to see you at any time before the finish line at 8:00 PM.
How to help your Village Hall whilst you shop online with Amazon at no expense to you!
Do you shop online with Amazon?
If you do, you can help to raise much needed funds for the Village Hall at no expense to you by using Amazon Smile when you shop.
As a registered charity, during the last few months, we have been able to sign up with Amazon Smile. It’s simple and easy for you to use and here’s how you can do it.
Visit smile.amazon.co.uk where you’ll be asked to nominate a charity. Search for us under the name Queniborough Village Hall. When you’ve done that, bookmark or favourite smile.amazon.co.uk and use that link whenever you buy through Amazon rather than your Amazon App or the Amazon web site. In all other ways your Amazon experience will be the same as usual.
Queniborough Village Hall will receive a donation of 0.5% of the price of every eligible purchase you make through that link, and should you wish to you can change your nominated charity at any time. We are working hard to keep the Village Hall open, and with increased cleaning costs and reduced income every little extra donation is much needed.
Those of you who use the Hall regularly will be aware that towards the end of last year we had a problem with the Hall floor, when an area by the main door into the hall developed what could only be called a mound.
We marked it up and called in a specialist floor contractor, who assessed the situation for us, confirmed that they could actually remedy it and were then booked to carry out the repair and regular maintenance for a period when we would be causing least disruption to you, our users.
When the Hall reopens you will now find a fully refurbished, clean and shiny (but not slippery) floor.

One of our regular users, fitness coach Sarah Bragg, was on Jonathan Lampon’s show when Ady Dayman was sitting in for him on BBC Radio Leicester at 2:13 pm on Wednesday 16th August. She was there to talk about the rise in the number of older people exercising. You can listed to the interview here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05b4r7g.
