Firstly October / November were busy month for fundraising with several events fundraising for Rumbletums. Many of you will have joined in and enjoyed the fun. Many thanks to Mike Baldwin for a very entertaining evening talking about his experience building show gardens. Also thanks to Roots micro pub in Kimberley who hosted a very successful fundraising night. Trevor Rood scooped Santa’s little helper award this year at the parish hall, pulling out chairs for the fashion show which was packed to capacity raising funds for Rumbletums. Just to say a huge thank you to those who organised, catered, sold tickets and manned events. We really appreciate that you’ve given so much time and effort to the cause.
For those of you who don’t know Kimberley Jam is a charitable Trust which exists to raise funds for local causes. They have host regular events throughout the year through which they fundraise for local causes. They have kindly offered to promote Rumbletums in their fundraising events this year. You can follow their Facebook page to see what’s going on in Kimberley in the coming months.
Major Grant Applications
The other major development of our fundraising campaign has been the ongoing work of Jeff Buck applying for grants from larger donating bodies such as the National Lottery. He has been pleased by their positive response and we have successfully gone through to the second round with both the National Lottery and Power to Change awards. Many thanks to Jeff for his hard work achieving that.

What a great night! Models from Rumbletums showed off current fashion to the lovely audience filling the Parish Hall, who enjoyed a glass of Prosecco before turning their attention to the business at hand. Many thanks to Stevie and Lynne for organising such a great event in aid of Rumbletums. Thanks also to helpers, SOS fashion shows and Trevor, who decorated the hall beforehand.
See you all soon at the Christmas Lights Switch on!
Sarah, Nicola, Alex, Emily and Gareth have been busy creating Christmas card designs based on the theme of “Lights and Baubles”. The designs were created using wax and ink. We were delighted with the results. We hope you like them too.
They are available to buy singly or in mixed packs of 5 and 10 from the Café. Please feel free to order a selection of the ones you like the most. Cards are 120 x 120 square, printed on high quality card with envelopes.
In order to raise some of the funds needed to buy the premises that Rumbletums currently occupies in Kimberley (see “Rumbletums 7th Birthday and a New Challenge” below), we’ve set up a GoFundMe page. If you’d like to support us, we’d be very grateful for any donation, however large or small.
