A big thank you to all those who took on the challenge of raising funds through our delightful Christmas hampers in these difficult times.
Delighted to say that we have raised approx. £1150 including the hamper in the Centre, which was so kindly donated by nurse Emma’s mother. Much appreciated!
A special thank you to Tesco for providing us with a voucher to buy goodies for the hampers. Also, a big thank you to volunteer Liz Trend who helped to put together the hampers so beautifully.
Facebook birthday fundraiser
Bela Brown has raised £409 for our Centre through her Facebook birthday fundraiser. Thank you also to Corrine and Joe for their fundraisers. Angela Hawes too is raising funds through a birthday fundraiser and her total so far is £312. Thank you, all!
If you would like to ask for donations instead of presents for your birthday this year and you need some help setting this up, please email [email protected] a couple of weeks before your birthday and Swarupa can help you set up a birthday fundraiser through either Facebook or JustGiving.
Our virtual Christmas tree raised £125
We had our virtual Christmas Tree online for the first time and could add baubles and candles, put our presents under the tree and light the star on top for a small donation. Thank for lighting up our tree!

Bedford Park Concerts
We are delighted, once again, to be the chosen charity working with the Bedford Park Concerts in 2021. Thank you to the organisers for this very welcome opportunity.
