Jammin’ 4 Gary – 1st May

Jammers

A huge thank you to everyone that came and those that helped make wonderful tribute for Gary possible. It was everything we’d hoped for and more, we feel very blessed having such a fabulous family and friends, and being a part of such an amazing community. We were so moved by the palpable feeling of love, laughter and the uplifting music.

Jammin’

We raised £350 in cash for Thames Valley Air Ambulance that has been added to the online total of £3,398.15. Thank you to everyone that donated so far as we have exceeded our target of £2500 for just one flight.

I know many of you still wish to donate so lets pay for another flight for someone else.

You can donate online https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GaryDFox or as I’ve done for others let me have your donation and message so I can post it for you.  Whatever works for best for you, my email is theboma@icloud.com .

Below is our visit on Tuesday 2nd May to meet the crew and see the Air Ambulance that landed on our Cricket Field. Thank you all again for love and support,  Deb, Grant & Lauren xxx

We’re Jammin’ For Gary

We’re Jammin’ for Gary to celebrate the many roles of The Fantastic Mr. Fox and fund raising for Thames Valley Air Ambulance as they landed on our Cricket Field to help him.

One of the many roles Gary played was that of  a “Pied Piper”; he managed to get so many children and adults to join in the concerts that we started in Horley. Gary loved reggae and a strong bassline, so its “gonna be all about the bass” and “we’re jammin’, jammin’, we hope you like jammin’, too.

This event will also raise awareness for both the “Hands off Horton” Hospital campaign and the Youth Offending Service, both of which were very important to Gary.

To read more about Gary, how to make a donation to the Air Ambulance and to leave us a message please go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GaryDFox

Thanking you in advance, with love Deb, Grant and Lauren xxx

Please note that due to the capacity of our church this event is invitation only, we have tried to include everyone via a Facebook invite and email. However if you knew Gary and you would like to join us on Monday 1st May then please email theboma@icloud.com so if numbers permit we’ll try and “jam” you in!
