Rumbletots will be back in the New Year on Tuesday 8th Jan. Parents and Carers are all welcome to this fun and lively group. We meet from 1 -3 every Tuesday term time.

Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year from Rumbletots

Fundraising Update

Fundraising total to date £16, 064.93

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.

Kimberley Jam
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.

Small Business Saturday Sat 1 Dec

Support local small business on Saturday 1 December.  Enjoy a free tea or coffee with a full breakfast until 11am  or main meal until 2.30pm.  Make sure you check out our beautifully designed Christmas Cards also on sale in the Cafe throughout December.

Make sure you have a little rest from all the Christmas shopping by calling in to Rumbletums. Our coffee is the best and probably a cure for tired shopping feet!

Fashion Show for Rumbletums

Rumbletums fashion  Show

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!

Kimberley Lights switch on Friday 30th November 2018

We’re all looking forward to another Kimberley Lights Switch on here at Rumbletums. The café will be open from 5.30 – 8.30 selling hot drinks  and a selection of cakes and snacks.

This year we will also be selling our amazing Christmas Cards at the parish hall along with some beautiful knitted craft items. Why not join us there and support the work of Rumbletums Café.


Show Gardens and Roots raise funds for Rumbletums

Many thanks to Mike Baldwin for a delightful evening full of anecdotes and interest as he took us on a tour of his show garden career.  H.R.H Prince Philip apparently doesn’t like Rhododendrons!

Lovely canapes and cakes prepared by the Rumbletums team gave everyone plenty of brain food at half time.

Thanks also to the wonderful Roots micro pub in Kimberley who hosted a music and quiz night in aid of Rumbletums, raising over £1200.  We’ve been completely bowled over by their generosity

Keep checking to see what events are happening to support Rumbletums.

Fundraising Campaign

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.
