Kelly Lewis, PAC fundraising assistant  said, “We are very pleased to be working with Jhalmuri and the football club.  We held similar events last year and they were a great success.  Tickets are limited so I would advise you to book early by visiting,  search for either  ‘Curry Night, Frome’, ‘Quiz Night, Frome’  or ‘Choir Concert, Bruton’ Or all three! We look forward to seeing you.”

PAC is currently the only organisation to offer professional counselling to any adults or children affected or bereaved by cancer and other life threatening illnesses in BANES, Somerset and West Wilts. PAC receives no central government funding and depends on community fundraising, grant making trusts, the generosity of individual donors and their volunteer fundraisers.
