Local Dining Out Group Monthly Charity Raffle:
  As we move into 2017 we will be supporting different charities on a monthly basis. We start in January with the Stars Appeal supporting Salisbury District Hospital. Our idea will be to donate to smaller and even more LOCAL charities. Please send in any suggestions and charity contact details (web address preferred)

The Stars Appeal raise funds to enhance care for patients across all Wards & Departments in Salisbury Hospital. You can read more through this link. They also have a Facebook page and you can follow on Twitter. We will welcome any prizes you may be able to donate for our January raffle. Every prize given means less prizes we have to buy and more cash to the monthly charity.

Our chosen charity for February is the Salisbury Trust for the Homeless which provides a home for single adults who would otherwise have nowhere to live. You can read more about this charity on their website or on Facebook (click here) and on Twitter (click here)


Your ticket for our February 2017 dinner will cost £26.00 per person.
(This includes your travel to the restaurant, a Two Course Dinner and tips for our driver and the restaurant staff)
