Come to the Charity and Community Day


NLCA will have a stall at the Charity and Community Day in the Royal Pavilion Gardens on Saturday, June 25 from 10am to 4pm. We'll be giving out information about NLCA, selling our North Laine Book and inviting you to take part in our tombola to raise funds for NLCA. Many local charities will take part and you can chat to them about their work. There is also entertainment from the Silver Sounds Samba Band and the tuneful, irreverent Von Krapp Singers.
