Our friends at Home-Start Bracknell Forest recently sent us a lovely letter to thank us for the money we raised for them at our 'Carols by Candlelight' in December. Please take a look at their letter here.
It's great to think that what hopefully for all of us was a really enjoyable evening will also have the long term impact of seeing the lives of families in Bracknell Forest changed. I know from families within Kerith who have been helped by Home-Start what an incredible difference their support makes - it's great to think we've been involved in helping make that happen for other families in our wider Bracknell Forest community.
If you fancy doing some more fundraising Home-Start have asked me to let people know that they are looking for willing volunteers to join their team of runners in the Bracknell Half Marathon on 8th May! They have paid for spaces for up to 6 runners, who have to be willing to wear an orange Home-Start running vest and raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship for them. They have 4 runners so far, so would love to find at least another 2. If you're interested then please phone Tessa or Julie on 01344 860026, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be more updates on where some of our giving has gone over the next few weeks.
