WINCHESTER charity Home-Start are holding a Barn Dance and Hog Roast at The Meon Hall in Meonstoke.

Home-Start’s fundraisers are getting ready for the event on Saturday, June 29, and, already in the mood for a hoedown, they called in to see event sponsor Bill Rawles Classic Cars to collect their sponsorship cash. 

Tickets are £30 plus booking fees.

Hampshire Chronicle:

Charity patron Sally Stewart headed to Bill Rawles’ Bramdean workshop along with sisters and Home-Start fundraisers Suzanne Rogers and Melanie Bolger to meet siblings Jack and Charlie Rawles.

“There was no need for strong arm tactics as the boys paid up quite happily,” Sally reported. “And it was a great opportunity for us to see the beautiful classic cars in the workshop, all being treated with tender loving care.”

“We are a local charity,” said Sally “and Rawles is a company built on family values, so it’s wonderful to have them on board.

“They understand the importance of supporting each other and completely understand the ethos of Home-Start giving young families the best possible start in life.”

The Craigievar Ceilidh Band will be lighting the venue up with barn dance music and guests can enjoy a hearty hog roast supplied by Nick Hillier of Beechcroft Farm, topped up with home-made salads and desserts.

There will also be a bar selling wine, beer and soft drinks.
