Charity Walk for Peace

Written by

We had a beautiful sunny walk at this year's Charity Walk for Peace held at the Hogmoor Inclosure in Bordon. Thank you to everyone that sponsored us. The event is an initiative of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association – part of the UK’s oldest established Muslim community and as ever was well organised with a delicious curry afterwards. There will be a cheque presentation later in the year.

Congratulations to Nicky!

Written by

Nicky, one of our minibus drivers, has raised over £3,000 for our Linking up Against Loneliness project with her bike ride from Cambodia to Vietnam. We are so incredibly proud of her…and then she was back for a few days and went off skiing! We think she is actually super woman. If you’d still like to give please go to her just giving site https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/nicky-gardner-vietnam-cambodia2022

Wow! After an appeal in store organised by Janine from Tescos we were gifted with over 130 wrapped chocolate gifts for our clients. It really was so heartwarmingly generous of the local community. Thank you so much everyone.

Lunch Club Christmas

Written by

Our cook Marian, and her wonderful team of helpers, produced a delicious Christmas meal for lunch club. At one point Marian seemed to have roast potatoes up to her armpits! She was presented with a voucher from all of the clients, flowers from the helpers and gifts from the trustees. She gave a wonderful speech saying how much she just enjoys cooking for everyone. We look forward to many more of her delicious meals in 2023.

Live on BBC Radio Solent!

Written by

Phew! Sheridan and Nicky went live on Radio Solent to promote Nicky’s fundraising bike ride and the Linking up Against Loneliness project. They said it felt a bit scary but the feedback was that they did brilliantly! Hopefully we can raise more funds for this fabulous project which has a £5,000 target.

Volunteer Opportunities

Written by

It was thankfully a sunny day when we had a market stall in town with other charities to promote our volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in what we do and would like to help please do get in touch. We are very flexible and can work around your lifestyle. It is also incredibly rewarding. Come and join as a lunch club helper, minibus driver or a Link Up volunteer.
