Each month we give away up to £300 to 3 different charities and fundraisers, through our Charity of the Month draw.
For July 2019, we are happy to have supported the following 3 amazing causes, in no particular order:
1, Burnage Good Neighbours (click here for link to website) - Sam put the charity forward who took us up on 10 Printed Mugs to be used at the luncheon club held, which helps combat loneliness in a safe environment. Burnage Good Neighbours promotes Valuing Older People and provides opportunities for people who feel isolated to meet with their peers and feel part of the local community. Burnage Good Neighbours provides volunteering opportunities for local people which we firmly believe benefits the volunteers as much as the older people they support.

2, Nottinghamshire Search & Rescue (click here for link to website) - Paul put the charity forward who took us up 200 printed balloons and 200 balloon sticks to use at events over the summer. Works with Nottinghamshire Police to search for missing and vulnerable people. We are all unpaid volunteers and are on-call 24/7 365 days a year. To make a donation, please click here.
3, Me to You (click here for link to website) - Alison from Me to You put the charity forward who took us up on a £40 donation to use towards stationary costs. The charity encourages and inspires people to write letters to friends, family and strangers who are suffering from cancer; keeping them connected at a time they can feel most disconnected and tackling the social isolation so often experienced by cancer patients.
