Merry Christmas To All!

RUE had a good day last Thursday,  We performed on behalf of St Michaels Hospice at Tesco  in Hastings, taking part in a 12hr donation event. Some of us then went on to the SMH shop in Rye to present a cheque for £400 collected during this year at various performances especially for St Michaels Hospice..

Dear Justine and all the members of the Rye Ukulele Experiment,

Huge thanks for donating your time to play at our Christmas Fair on Saturday, it was so wonderful to have your fantastic music during the day, it completely lifted the atmosphere and we have received lovely feedback from all who attended on how much they enjoyed it.

We raised an incredible £2,646.12 from the Fair and Raffle which will be used to provide essential care and support services to local people living with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

On behalf of everyone at the Trust, thanks once again – we really hope you enjoyed being part of the Fair and would love to see you all next year, to do it all over again.

With very best wishes,

Maria, Nikki and everyone at The Sara Lee Trust

Sarah Lee Trust Christmas Fair

We dusted off our jingle bells and raided our wardrobes for red things, and got into the mood at The Sara Lee Trust Christmas Fair, held in the beautiful church of St John the Evangelist, St Leonards. This wonderful charity raises funds to help families and people affected by cancer. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere and lots of people, and we were joined for a while by Tony, a uke player visiting from The Isle of Wight. Nice to meet you Tony!
