Plumstead Make Merry to hold fundraising bash at Greenwich Rugby Club Pavilion

A FUNDRAISING event is being held for a festival which was cancelled after Greenwich Council cut its funding.

The Plumstead Make Merry Association hosts a benefit bash on April 16 from 7.30pm at the Greenwich Rugby Club Pavilion, Plumstead Common.

Entry will cost £5 at the door and all proceeds will go towards supporting the festival – the longest-running in Greenwich. There will be karaoke, disco and fun and games.

Organiser Doug Harper said: “We could spend our time and energy complaining about the cuts and campaigning against them – but we won’t. There are many other cuts happening within the borough and nationally.

“Instead, we are dedicated to ensuring that a Make Merry will take place next year.”
