Do you have any unwanted Christmas presents that we could use at Buddies as raffle prizes? We will be doing a number of different fund raising events over the next 12 months and we will use prizes to help us raise money for the summer holiday club. We are also having a clothes weigh in so if you have any old clothes, shoes, hats, belts or coats bag them give up them to a member of the team.
The Changing Lives Project ( a group for disabled adults) will are making jam and chutney – if you have any empty jars that we can re-use– please bring them to the next club session or give them to Louise or Tori. The jams, chutney and pickled beetroot are for sale at £1 a jar- all money raised will be used to fund Buddies activities.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the VOLUNTEERS that helped out during the summer holidays giving up your free time to come and help the children at club. We really do appreciate your support and hope you will be able to come along to our Saturday sessions. We are always looking for new volunteers so if you know of a young person who wants to work with children or needs some volunteering experience speak to Louise on 07938163103.
On Saturday 1st/ & Sunday 2nd July the Buddies did a cycleathon from Crewe to Isle of Man, a total of 333 miles. The Buddies team were in Tesco Crewe from 10-5pm and thanks to a great team of volunteers we managed to cycle the whole distance.Thank you to everyone who helped, we raised over £510 towards the Isle of Man trip.
