Virtual birthday celebration raises money for Shared Lives Plus

June 27, 2020

Club member Diane decided to hold a virtual birthday party with club members to raise money for the SharedLivesPlus charity. A charity that provides care in the home very often with a buddy system. It was their awareness and fundraising week so we thought we would help out. We raised £85.

Seeing it was Ascot week we thought we would have a bit of fun and wear a hat. A pity the cake couldn’t be shared!


Fundraising Yoga Classes

June 14, 2020

Club member Diane is currently teaching virtual yoga classes 3 times per week in order to raise money for 5 charities during lockdown. The charities are for Lupus UK, Friends of Young Carers (Banes), Samaritian Emergency Relief Fund, Womenandgirls.org and the RUH NHS Heroes.

So far over £1,000 has been raised and hopfully there will be more to come as the weeks and months go by.


National Volunteer Week

June 5, 2020

Our members volunteer in many ways from making PPE equipment for local dentists, vets, teachers and shops, ringing up vulerable elderly people every week, running a community shop and post office, volunteering at Devon Wildlife Trust, creating activity packs for families at this critical time.

We try and tick all the boxes when it comes to the UN’s Sustainable Goals.


More ring pulls to PCF

June 3, 2020

Another batch of ring pulls have been sent to the Purple Community Fund. The rings have been collected from all the regional clubs in the South West and Channel Islands and are badly needed in the Phillipines right now.

Keep on the pulling them!


Walking for WaterAid

May 7, 2020

Rosemary rose to the challenge of walking 49km during March for WaterAid. It should have been 62km but unfortunately the Coronavirus took hold and prevented her from finishing. However, she managed to raise £50. Here are the trainers that helped her along the way supporting the Girlguiding organisation as well.

These shoes were made for walking!
