Thank you Mendip Rotary

Huge thanks to the Mendip Rotary for their generous donation of £250 towards the delivery of paperless technology systems for the charity.

With this donation and other funding secured, we have been able to put this into delivery and this will improve efficiencies across the board with benefits directly affecting the clients who use the service.

Father and Son Run 100km’s

Next year a father and son duo are taking part in the ‘Race To The Stones’ which is taking place next year on the 4th and 5th July.

It’s a 100km trek/run along what is recognised as the oldest path in Britain. They’ll be completing this challenge over 2 days with a stop overnight at the half way point to rest and no doubt apply some blister plasters! You never know they might just do it in a day!!!

The race starts in Lewknor and ends in Avebury.

Please support them to raise as much money as possible, which will directly make a difference to other peoples lives, many of them sadly, children and young people. By sponsoring us, please know that you have been a part of a unique opportunity as very rarely do we as human beings have a chance to directly make a difference to the emotional wellbeing of another non related. 

If you are a UK tax payer, don’t forget to gift aid as the UK government will add another 25% to your donation! All proceeds raised go directly towards counselling sessions for children, young people and adults.

You can donate, sponsor and support them by clicking here

Thank you all for your support.

Jumble Sale Raises £259!

Hi All,

Breaking news, our latest jumble sale was held today in Burnham on Sea at St Andrews Church Hall and raised a fantastic £259!

Special thanks to our organisers – too many to mention but Mandy, Vicky & Sharron for arranging it all. Thank you to all our cake bakers who delivered once again and of course you, the general public and loyal supporters of the charity who supported.

It was lovely to see so many people there and remember, every £1 raised today goes back into the charity and can help to change someone’s life for the better.
