We do all sorts of social and charity events here at Geordie Chapter. June, July and August are always our busiest months. We do seasonal events too. A barbeque in the summer and a Santa Run at Christmas (not the other way round!) are always firm favourites.
We usually head up to deepest Northumberland for our annual barbeque where our Chapter members dazzle each other with their cooking skills.
Christmas is a time for giving and our Chapter members are always very generous. On our Santa Run in 2015, we donated to our local rugby club at Percy Park for new rugby strips and our collected gifts were gratefully received by the Salvation Army. We finished the day at the children’s ward at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, with a donation of portable DVD players. It was a great day, although hampered slightly by wind, rain and snow.
Our Activities Officers keep an eye out for all sorts of other events for us and you can find these in our Events Calendar. Chapter members get up-to-date information through our closed Facebook group and by email.
