It has been a huge month for the team and we wanted to keep you all in the loop.
We have been doing alot of fundraising and the team of volunteers has built a great relationship, this is so important to us as some events are larger than others and we need all the support we can muster, even though the odd water and inflatable fight is usually part of the fun!
We are now in full flow of preperation for our next two large fundraisers our annual charity pageant, a team tandem sky dive, & our Summer Raffle. The pageant is open to all, contestants can range from 0-99years, all contestants win at least a crown & sash, and there are also Holidays up for grabs! At the end of the pageant we will be opening to the public to draw our Grand Summer Raffle, you can purchase tickets between now & the 21st August, the draw will be live streamed through our FB page . We have had a number of companies offer raffle prizes and they are listed on the event page. The tandem sky dive has a goal of reaching £10,000, so far we have 13 jumpers! You can donate to any of these events directly, or if you know of any businesses who may like to sponsor a particular event they can register their interest here.
Our usual Weekly Craft Club is going strong (Tues 4pm) and is one of the clubs continuing over the summer, hosted by our volunteers Deb & Rachael, please register to attend , and let us know if there is anything extra we can help you with to make the group more accessable for you. We are also starting our monthly morning messy play craft club, this will usually be the last Tuesday of the month, the first session is the 26th July. At these clubs we encourage the kids to be as creative as they would like, there is often a lot of mess so old clothes are a must, we also encourage parents and carers to get involved.
Meditation Group is also going to around over the summer break, contact Juliet to register your place!
Now for our out of the box news! #PokemonGo has taken the town by storm, so for a trial period we are opening up a Pokemon Go Meet Up at Square Pegs, informal chance to swap tips, finds, talk Gyms & plan the next walking routes with your existing & of course your new friends! Join the pokeeee Fun!
Our main office is closed in August, as the team are on summer leave. We will check the emails one a week, but if there are any emergencies please text only 07400040904.
Thank you for all your support through our first four months as a registered charity, here's to the next................cheers.......
